As I’d left some linen webbing from my DIY espadrille shoes, I made a matching linen dog collar for my dog. – Originally, I had bought the linen webbing for a dog collar, 😉 but then I used some of it for the espadrilles – and luckily I’d just enough left for the dog collar!
I used linen webbing, two V4A stainless steel O-rings and a screw-lock carabiner. Because the webbing is 100% linen, I used linen sewing thread.
I sewed the dog collar by hand back and forth with backstitches to make a strong seam.
The linen webbing is very strong – stronger than cotton webbing – so it doesn’t need a backing of nylon or polypropylene webbing which commercial linen dog collars have.
She seems to like it …
… and finds it comfortable to sleep in. 😉
I also made an Edwardian silver dog collar and two rope dog leashes.
