    Default Not quilting BUT good for craft fairs.

    Ok I know this is not quilting but I have been making these for my BIG dogs. For my really big dogs the total cost is under $3 including my 2.5" strip of fabric.

    Matching leashes would be under $5 (I haven't done the math yet but the parts are cheap)

    I would think that these would sell well and are small enough to not take up much space.

    I used my not so good singer machine to make mine and it did not struggle. Just letting folks know in case there is worry about breaking a good machine.

    All the parts are available in smaller sizes too....

    It might be something hung over had can draw folks to a booth....that "something different".

    It should have read as fixed above.

    Apparently autocorrect is less than correct.

    They are nice :-) Can you say around how much you sell them for?

    Honest to goodness I started making these just for my own dogs. Everywhere we go people ask where I got the collars.
    They are beefy at 1.5" and the colorful fabrics I have on the others are eyecatching.
    I have paid $15+ for collars that are 1" wide so given how inexpensive these are to make and the interest people show I would sell for $10-15 each.
    Literally my first one took me 10 minutes to make.

    This is my 90# dog wearing hers so you can see how beefy they are.

    That sounds like a reasonable price. I really like that they are the wider ones. Your dog is adorable :-) Rottie in him?

    I know a lady who sells dog collars and leashes and does really well at shows.

    Thanks. No rottie at all. Mom was an airedale dad was a coonhound. She is a good girl....most of the time. We also have a Malamute, a bloodhound, a pitsky and the old guy a wire haired pointer mix. Collars get expensive with so many dogs.
