okay, so dh and i are huge bama fans, and we recently adopted a sweet little yorkie/shih tzu. we wanted to get a bama collar/leash set for her, but they were all crazy wide and looked silly since she's under 10 lbs. so i happened to have some houndstooth fabric i'm planning to make bloomers out of for my daughter, and figured i'd whip something up for the pup! i love it, bama pride without being obnoxious Wink

anyway, this is the first post i've made to the forum, any comments would be greatly appreciated! Smiley

That does look very professional!! You did a great job! Did you add anything to the fabric to make it stronger for going on walks and such or is it ok to just use fabric folded over?

thanks girls! it's fabric only, folded 4 thick, double stitched down the edges. she's so teeny it doesn't need to be industrial strength or anything but then i did also do a box and x (not sure what that's called!) on the end folds, plus two rows of triple stitch, lol. maybe that is industrial? Wink i thought about doing a webbing one with the fabric sleeve, but this seemed easier for our needs.

You did a great job with this, I really love it. I have been dying to make a set for my two new puppies... but been scared that they won't be as sturdy and hold up.

How are your holding up ... and do you have any advice for me if I eventually attempt a collar leash set ?

Thanks...and again beautiful work I love it !
