    Yes, I have decided to start making fancy leather collars, and so far I'm having success! It's really fun and rewarding, because my dogs get to have a wardrobe of collars that can't be found anywhere else but in my imagination! <3

    Anyway, here is Eevee's new collar, which I'm calling the "Heart Dog" collar. I just finished it last night!

    Hey Zoom, I think I may have found my calling. Making leather collars doesn't involve standing in front of a crowd lol... >o.o;<

    Thanks guys!

    UM, HELLO?
    When are you going to start offering them for sale to at least us Chazzers????

    It's BEAUTIFUL.
    I LOVELOVELOVE that heart, and that is one concho I have not seen anywhere yet!

    We're ordering the tools, at the end of the month, to start offering leather collars.
    BUT not THOSE kind of collars. We'll be offering leather choker-style collars in addition to our leashes.

    You can pick them up from several different leather suppliers.

    Just wait, once you start selling collars to other people your own dogs only get new collars once every few years or so, LOL!:rofl1:

    Holy crap! I had no idea you were a member here! (shows how much attention I pay, right?) *bows down*

    But yeah you're right. I've seen this heart concho everywhere on the net and wanted to use it myself. <3

    Don't worry about it. I'm not on here as much as I want to be simply because of workload, but I'm home sick today (grumble, grumble).

    Also, if you ever have any questions about leatherworking or suppliers feel free to e-mail me, I'm all about sharing information and education. I actually just wrote a how-to-make a dog collar article for Craft Magazine... should be published soon, woohoo!

    Wow... that is GAWJUS! = O I would love to make custom collars, but I lack the skills. Yours looks really well-made.

    Eevee looks adorable in it. But where's the Shippo?

    I'm always open to advice. I want to learn everything I can to make these collars the best I can. I'll be sure to come to you, and let me know when that article is published. >^^;<

    Shippo's collar is definitely next. >^_~<

    That is beautiful! I'm so impressed with the skills of so many Chazzers.

    Can I ask where you look for 'doohickeys' like the heart? I have a wonderful guy who does all the leather work for my horse stuff, and I'm thinking maybe I could get him to make a collar or two if I provided some of the stuff.
