Made to order collars (and leads)

Post by Sid_Wolf on Mon Jun 20, 2011 11:36 am

Right, so some of you commented on my other thread about me making collars, well I tried my mums sewing machine today and it works perfectly Very Happy So I've brought it home and have made the sample collars :w00t:

So here they are:

Flat (no buckle) collar, untighten, slip over the head then tighten to correct Size





Semi slip collar, no buckles, put on the same way as the above collar. Collar tightens by 2 inches when the ring is pulled to prevent escapes







House collar: Simple collar with popper fastening which comes apart when pulled so is safe to be worn when left alone, as it will give away if caught. Not to be used for walking.

Buckle collars will be avaliable aswell, but I currently have no buckles! Will post pictures once I have some.

Collars are made from strong zigzag weave polyproylene webbing, and all main stitching (not ribbon stitching) is done 4 times for extra strength. All metal parts are weilded.

Me and OH have taken the collars and pulled against each other and they have not given way, so they are very strong.

Webbing can be either 25mm or 13mm and avaliable in a range of colours:

Black
Red
Royal Blue
Navy Blue
Sky Blue
Bottle Green
Purple
Baby Pink

please note that not all of these colours are avaliable in 13mm webbing, and when using 13mm webbing, buckles and sliders will be plastic as I cant get metal ones in that size from my supplier.

Ribbon is avaliable in a variety of patterns and colours:

these are the ones I currently have


pink, black and blue hearts


spots!


purple checks


Stripes!


Bones


Black & silver hearts


Circle hearts


Pink, Green & purple

These are the ones I can get, this is just a few of them, there are more, and other colours aswell, i just looked like a fool taking pictures in the shop :blush: sorry for bad quality, taken with my fone


Pink & spotty


Orange checks


Chocolate heart spots


Green checks


Purple heart spots


Red checks

this is just a small selection of ones avaliable, I can get more so if you want a different colour or pattern just as and i'll see what I can do Very Happy

Prices:

£5 for the Buckle, Flat and Semi slip styles
£3 for the House collars
Ribbon can be added for £1 extra

£1 postage on all orders

payment via PayPal

Just post in this thread or pm me with your requirements (colours, size of webbing, style/colour of ribbon if required, & neck measurement)

Matching Leads will also be avaliable in various lengths (please tell me when ordering

Oooh how much would matching leads be of just standard length (1m ish..?)?

Not sure on what colour to go for with Rupes, or ribbon! Embarassed

Re neck size, do you make the collar adjustable for an inch or so either side of their exact measurement? Rupert needs to muscle up a bit is all so would need it to go up to 1-2inches bigger than his current size Smile

more than an inch hun, they are fully adjustable and i'd make it so the size you give me is around the middle adjustment, so it can go either way

1m leads are £6 Smile

I use polypropylene, the supplier i use has incredibly limited colours of cushion, and its really expensive! If she had more colours and it wasnt so expensive i'd use it.

Can you link me to some good suppliers? I'm using lynda's horsewear atm, shes fab, but as above, only the polypropylene has a good range of colours and widths
