i always thought it was crazy how much people spent on their animals...until i became a puppy owner a few months back! we are on our second dog bed (we've only had our puppy for four months!) and probably five zillion dog toys!! for Christmas our pup got a ton of toys; some of which only lasted a day! but like my husband says, better him chewing on those than our furniture!!
so i came across an idea and started making a few dog leashes...i mean, we coordinate our purses to our outfits or mood, so why not accessorize our pups as well, even if i am just walking him out back! some of the blogs listed really fancy ways to make leashes, but i of course, strapped for time chose an easy way! (and a way that if my pup chewed it up i wouldn't get upset that all my hard work would be for nothing!) i was lucky enough to find nylon that was already packaged (there was no way i was going to stand in a mile long line at the cutting counter just for a few yards of nylon strapping...i'm sure i could've found some fabric to purchase as well, but with it being my second trip to the fabric store this week, that would be a little to much wouldn't it?) and found some fun ribbon on sale (even better!), and some swivel clips. when i got home i just took one look at my old leash, started lining up my ribbon in the middle of the nylon strapping, sewed straight down on both sides, and sewed a zillion times on the folded over parts where the swivel clip was and where i wanted the leash to be a handle, and voila- i was done! soooo...now my puppy has some fun leashes and my husband thinks i have too much time on my hands!
