Make a cute, very quick and easy to make dog lead with three strap options; the lead is made from chain which extends to make a chain collar which loops around the dog's neck and clips back onto the lead. The neck chain sports a charm or name tag. Make straps from imitation leather, pretty patterned gross-grain ribbon, or DIY bias tape to color-coordinate an outfit. This is a must-have accessory for any puppy dog.
This PDF crafting pattern, by Little Miss Muffett, was designed to be used with 18" dolls such as American Girl® and their pets, but can be modified to fit any doll.
Supplies Used – I used Imitation Leather, folded Bias Tape and Gross-Grain Ribbon for the straps, size-appropriate chain for the leads, triangular jump rings removed from key chains, and charms in place of name tags.
