  • Step 1

    METHOD

    Cut a rectangle 15 × 125cm (6 × 49¼in) in the fusible web.

  • Step 2

    Place the rough side on the wrong side of the fabric and iron the paper surface with a hot (steam-free) iron.

  • Step 3

    Cut a strip 6 × 65cm (2¼ × 25½in) for 
the collar and a second strip 6 × 125cm 
(2¼ × 49¼in) for the lead.

  • Step 4

    The lead

    After removing the paper film, place the strap in the middle of the strip measuring 
6 × 125cm (2¼ × 49¼in). Fold the fabric in three on the strap and iron the two sides of the lead with a hot (steam-free) iron until the fabric sticks firm.

  • Step 5

    Sew the middle of the strip in feather stitch to prevent the fabric from fraying.

  • Step 6

    For the wrist loop, fold one of the ends at 20cm (7¾in) and sew two lines of tight zigzag stitch widthways, close to the join.

  • Step 7

    At the other end, fold at 5cm (2in), over the swivel trigger hook and sew two lines of tight zigzag stitch widthways, all along the edge to secure it.

  • Step 8

    The collar

    After removing the paper film from the 
6 × 65cm (2¼ × 25½in) strip, fold the strip in three to obtain a width of 2.5cm (1in) and iron the two sides with a hot (steam-free) iron until the fabric sticks firmly.

  • Step 9

    Sew the middle of the strip in feather stitch to prevent the fabric from fraying.

  • Step 10

    Fold one of the edges at 3cm (1¼in) and slip this end on to the centre bar of the sliplock ring; secure with zigzag stitch.

  • Step 11

    Place the second end of the strip through the male side-release buckle, then slip this end into the sliplock ring.

  • Step 12

    Bring out this end and fold at 5cm (2in), slip on the D-ring, then the female side-release buckle. Sew in zigzag stitch, first along the buckle, then after the D-ring, then on the end of the strip.

  • Step 13

    Attach the bead to the collar using the gold ring.

    Tips
    Before sewing, wash the fabric with special wool detergent.
    Zigzag stitch enables all the fabric layers to be held together firmly. Feather stitch is both secure and decorative.
