Handmade Monday - saddle stitched leather dog collars

Well, as promised I am finally taking part in handmade Monday again as organised by Wendy from 1st Unique Gifts. Do pop by her blog and see her new awesome Stig and Spider door hangers

After ordering some leather (I went with a natural veg tan) I decided to start adapting my new found leather stitching to my pet accessories. I haven't got the correct skimming equipment yet to start on my bags, so at least with the collars I can use a paring knife and crack on with them. I decided not to dye them as I want them to look quite traditional, as I go on I will be using various dyes and leathers.

The collars below are available in various lengths and two widths at present 1" and 1/2"

Natural plain leather veg tan dog collar from £20

Natural pink diamante veg tan leather dog collar from £22

Keeper and saddle stitch detail

The diamante are a nickel rivet and have been inserted by first creating the hole with a punch and then hammered in place. The nickel spikes are screwed into the pre-punched holes.

All edges have been bevelled and burnished to create a quality finish.

Brass buckles are on order so I will be making that option available shortly! Watch this space :)
I have also created matching leads which will be uploaded ASAP!

You may order these direct off my website  or simply send me an email at stating your specifications and you can pay by direct bank transfer/cheque or paypal.

Thanks for listening
Dee xx
