I’m pretty sure I’ve said before that I have a thing for dog leashes. I’m not one to own one or two leashes and call it good, no, I own many leashes for many different reasons and occasions. I have a bungee type leash, a leather leash (two if you count the one I bought for Ella when I went to Italy, but the clip is broken and thus hasn’t been used in years so I forget to count that one), two rope leashes, two traffic/super short leashes, a double leash and possibly a few others, but I think I got them all.
I just really like leashes.
So when I found this tutorial months ago I really wanted to try it. It sounded simple enough and the result was so pretty!
I finally gave it a try and now I have another rope leash, but not just any rope leash, a versatile, pretty and handmade by me leash!
And what’s more fun than making a leash for your dog?
Making three leashes for all the dogs with your Mom and sister.
Now Petal’s cousins, Penny and Leopold, have new leashes too!
They were easy and fun to make and I may already be thinking of reasons to make more.
Because I love leashes that can be used in many different ways, I put two small o-rings on the leash and a leash hook on both ends of the rope. This way I can use it as your standard leash or I can use it in a over the shoulder style, around the waist, or I can clip it around a bench or table leg for those times Petal joins me for some outdoor dining or I want to take pictures in a public place without worrying about what would happen if she were to break her stay. I would never leave her tied up unattended though, on this leash or any other leash.
Tell me if you think this is a perfectly good reason to make another one: Petal needs a black and orange rope leash for the sake of Halloween.
That’s a good reason, isn’t it? 😉
Want to make one for your dog? This tutorial was super easy to follow!
