make a leash for your favorite pup.
Collars are optional with this trendsetting slip-on lead. No fussy buckles or clips, gently slip it over the head and position it high on the neck for a comfortable and controlled stroll. Personalize it with a bit of ribbon and you're ready for a walk on the wild side!

    To make handle, fold one end over by 6 in with ribbon side out, and tuck a 1 inch section back under this fold. Stitch through all 3 layers at the fold and through two layers just above the folded-under edge, to enclose cut edge. Reinforce seams with an “X” if desired.

    Step 4

    The collar is already built in with this type of trainer style dog lead: pull a length of leash through D-Ring to create a loop then slip over your dog’s head. If you prefer a more traditional leash, substitute a snap hook for the D-ring. These are usually available at your local hardware store.
