Introducing the roses themed tooled leather dog collar

“Across Leather” Studio brings to you a step by step pictorial of a leather dog collar being brought to life.

Today I’ll finish the tooling, accomplish a stitch groove for the waxed linen thread and maybe spray some color to this piece. The stitch groove allows the thread to be approximately the same level as the leather to avoid any premature snags and add to it’s longevity.

The excited Miss Daisy took delivery of her first “Across Leather” custom tooled leather dog collar.
The oak leaves are arms to chairs when I was sub-contracting some tooled leather work from Northwest Native Designs owned by Ernie Apodaca.

Across Leather Studio creates custom leather dog collars, harnesses, matching leashes, belts and beyond

Here we have a “whippet collar” for Toby of the UK. I believe. It’s comprized from saddle skirting leather for the outer and goatskin as a inner liner. It measures 2 1/2″ wide with stylish tapered 1″ ends and is made exactly for Toby’s neck size 14″.

Thank you for be onboard for my first blog post. I got locked out of my old @AcrossLeather.

 

This piece is what we’re shooting for but with a different dye scheme.

Thank you for stopping in!
