Yay!!
I made some fleece tug toys last week, but I can't figure out how to make the ends look good... I'm doing the 4 strand woven type of braid. The dogs LOVE THEM! I like them because when the dogs pull they stretch out instead of jerking your arm.

What do you mean by making the ends look good? Like they're uneven, or something?

Cool shop, Peach!

I've been wanting to make dog collars myself on account of my inability to stop buying them! laugh out loud

Do you have any recommendations on sewing machines? How heavy duty do you need for nylon collars?

Nylon doesn't actually require a heavy duty sewing machine. You can buy a regular machine even at Walmart, just not a small or mini machine. What you DO need is a slightly thicker needle. My machine came with a size 12 needle, and I upgraded to a size 16 =)
