If you’re looking for a unique and stylish way to show your support for your furry friend, consider getting them a rolled leather dog collar. Not only are these collars stylish, but they can also be very comfortable for your pet. This article will show you how to make one of these collars yourself.
What You’ll Need for Rolled Leather Dog Collar
To make a rolled leather dog collar, you will need the following supplies:
1-Leather scraps (enough to make two collars)
2-Hot glue gun
3-Ruler or measuring tape
4-Peyton Grey rolling machine (or another rolling device)
5-Straight edge or ruler
1. Cut the leather scraps into desired lengths. Make sure that the width of the collar is greater than the circumference of your dog’s neck (to allow for comfortable stretching).
2. Glue one end of each leather strip to a straight edge, ensuring the glue is spread evenly across the length of the strip. If using a Peyton Grey rolling machine, follow the instructions included with your machine for attaching strips (usually by inserting one end of the strip into a small hole on one side of the machine and then pressing down). If using a different type of rolling device, attach strips by hand by placing one end of each strip over a sharp object and then pressing down until it adheres.
3. Using your ruler or measuring tape, mark a 1-inch border around each glued strip. Use this border as your guide when cutting the strips into 1-inch-wide pieces.
4. Now it’s time to assemble the collar! First, start by attaching one 1-inch-wide piece of leather to the center of each marked strip. Then, add two additional 1-inch-wide pieces of leather perpendicularly so that the edges of the first two pieces overlap slightly (see photo below). Glue these pieces in place.
5. Repeat this process until you have created a wide collar (see photo below). Be sure to evenly space the pieces along the circumference of your dog’s neck.
6. Finally, use your straight edge or ruler to trim any excess leather around the collar’s edges. You’re finished!
Materials Required for Rolled Leather Dog Collar
1. Using a durable leather collar, the best quality is usually cowhide. If you have a more expensive dog and don’t mind spending a bit more, use top-quality horsehide. Sheepskin is also a good choice, but it may be less durable than the other two materials.
2. To make your rolled leather collar, you will need the following materials:
2-Ruler or measuring tape
4-Stamp or awl
5-A light tan color chalk
6-Sandpaper (220 grit)
7-Paint or a sealant
Tools you will need to make a rolled leather dog collar:
1-An X-Acto Knife
2-A Packing Tape Measure
3-A Ruler or Straight Edge
4-Leather Cord (1/2 inch width)
5-Leather Tack (1-inch width)
How to Make a Rolled Leather Dog Collar?
Making a rolled leather dog collar is an easy and rewarding project. This collar is perfect for dogs that are active and want to be able to move around freely. The rolled leather gives the collar good flexibility and durability. The collar can be customized to fit your dog perfectly.
First, measure around your dog’s neck where you want the rolled collar to fit. You’ll need to ensure that the collar’s width is slightly greater than the circumference of your dog’s neck – this will ensure a comfortable fit.
Next, cut the leather collar accordingly using a sharp knife or stamp/awl. Make sure to leave enough extra material on both ends of the roll so that you can easily extend it with tape later. Once you have cut out the pieces, press them with your fingers to ensure a tight fit.
Now, it’s time to start extending the collar. Start by taping one end of the roll to the opposite end of the collar, ensuring that the tape is evenly spaced and barely touching the leather.
Next, take a measurement from this taped end to the desired length of the collar, and make a mark on the roll. Continue measuring and marking until you have extended the collar to its desired length.
Finally, remove the tape and smooth any wrinkles in the leather with sandpaper (220 grit). Once everything is smooth, paint or sealant it if you wish.
