Default I'm pretty proud of myself!

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!

Thanks - I'm thinking I'll make some to sell under my mom's horse line (Happy Horse Designs), and until then (until about May) I'm going to be making a lot of practice collars/leashes/toys and selling them cheap... I'm trying to get a website up and running.

Amanda, that's the plan. I've got a problematic GSD who could use some serious training, and I'll start this on her behalf. 10% (once I'm up and selling) will go to local GSD rescue, the rest will go towards her training.

Nice! I like the colors. Where do you get the hardware? I think it looks super and what a good idea for a business venture. Best of luck to you!
