    I'm in Canada.

    I just might have to take up this craft, seeing as I saw a leash that I absolutely fell in love with...... titel-495x400.jpg

    Yes, you should!! That uses a kumihimo disk that you can buy on amazon. Also look up macrame.

    Tried my hand on some harnesses. This style is probably the easiest in terms of measurements. However when I added the buckle, the harnesses became too big!! I can always pull the buckles and just leash the rings. Hector is going to wear this for his valentine shoot at a shelter fundraising event. The harnesses work great for pulling!!

    Made this for practice and it turned out well. Need to get 2 inch buckles!

    I made a harness for a great dane. I just copied the harness the owner used. I had intended to put the d ring on the back as I was making it but when it came time to make it I just wove straight through. I finished it for a fit test and need to make some minor adjustments for the new one. I just laughed in disappointment when I caught it.

    Those are truly beautiful.
    I think it's wonderful to be able to create something both beautiful and useful at the same time (doesn't matter about the ring ;)).

    Thanks Elana! The ring does matter because that is what the owner wanted lol.

    Great Work, Hector! I might be up for a "very pink, girly-girl" design. I thought with the big pink and diamond stud collar that we got our girl, and the big pink leather leash that people would get the drift...BUT THEY DON'T, it's always, "Wow, what a big guy you've got there", and versions on that. "She! Is a Girl Dog!" and versions of that, maddening.

    Is there a price range that I could consider?

    Thank you Boxergirl and no I don't have an online shop. Just busy doing it off of my facebook page and word of mouth.

    Since you already dress her up in pink, I don't know if a very pink collar will help??? lol maybe those people are colorblind??? You should get a leash wrap that says "I AM A GIRL" LOL! Do you happen to have facebook? The price for up to 15 is $25 and 15 inch + is $35 and for you, it will include shipping as I'm not really sure how much it is to ship to the UK, thinking around $10. You have different options like an adjustable biothane strap with nickel plated buckle or plastic or metal side release buckles or martingale chain or slip/choke piece made out of paracord or biothane. Send me a message if you are interested or if you have facebook, that's even better.

    Hector, I'm in the other London....as in Ontario, Canada. Tee Hee. But, seriously, I would expect that I'd have to pay for shipping. Thanks for info.
