Scrap Ribbon and Fabric Dog Leash

Hello everyone! I’m Becky from Patchwork Posse. I’m here to share a project to use your small bits of ribbon and fabric with. I blog about lots of easy sewing projects, and I’m the home of the Yearly Round Robin.

Taking my dog for a walk is one of my favorite things to do. They love the outdoors and exploring everywhere. A leash is a must have for any pet owner– and even pets need a little bit of something extra special sometimes.

Sew up a leash using your scrap ribbon and fabric for a customized leash for your favorite pet.
