I am so proud of myself! I usually can't sew a stitch, but I was talking with a friend last night about collars, and one she showed me got me cruious, so today I sat down and talked out a plan with my mom on how to make it, rigged up the sewing machine, and made this: The stitching could be better (and by that, I mean that there are places where the line isn't exactly straight. It's all sewn very sturdy and strongly) - and will be, I'm sure, as I make more and get used to using the sewing machine again (I haven't sewn for about 5 years). I'm going to make a matching leash for it, just as soon as I've got the time. I'm so proud of myself!
