The making process

The new collars are coming on (although I'm not sure my little sewing machine can handle one aspect but I'll figure it out!). The first challenge is securely fixing the decorative metal to the leather, which has turned out better than expected but currently investigating ways to improve this. On earlier attempts, I wasn't keen on how flappy the leather was so these have been moved in which has worked nicely.  As is standard with my collars, I sew in a strong internal webbing core as it makes for a more durable collar with the brass hardware being sourced from a UK foundry (nice and strong). The collar shown is 2" wide however I will do a narrow adaptation for non sighthound breeds too.  As I've done for all my collars, I am posting the making process for your information. Comments are welcomed! Thank you.
