So, I'd like to know where the last year went?

Is 2018 really over already?….it’s been much much longer than I realise since my last blog post - approximately a year ;) It was a great year for Skyefrog and I continue to add new designs and potter about in my little workshop. Thank you to all my wonderful customers who send me photos of their dogs wearing their new collars - I love them. I even received the most fantastic video which makes me laugh every time I see it (posted to the Skyefrog facebook page).

The year has gone by so quickly and I have no doubt this year will be the same. I always welcome custom orders if you’re looking for something a little bit different.

Wishing everyone the very best in 2019!

Here's to 2018!

Is 2017 really nearly over already? It's been a fantastic year for Skyefrog and I've introduced new designs and styles. I've received lots of lovely photos from customers which are really appreciated and can be checked out in the gallery. There has been a big increase in people requesting custom designs which I absolutely love and totally encourage! For 2018 I would really like to lean towards more leather-based products and have a few design ideas in mind which I am currently working on so look out for those in the new year. 

You can find a selection of Skyefrog collars and leads on the shelves at Bazil & Ruby Pet Boutique in London and now on Amazon too!  

I'd like to wish all my customers an absolutely wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2018. 

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.
