"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Glitzy Glam Dog Leash

By: Valeria Blackburn

Complete your diva dog's ensemble by making a glitzy leash with this free dog leash sewing pattern from Valeria Blackburn. Flower embellished leash matches the Glitzy Glam Dog Collar. Follow the size chart below for width/length of webbing, ribbon and buckle size to purchase. The flower is the same size for all leashes.


Glitzy Dog leash


Size Chart:

  • 12”-15” neck- 55” long x 1” wide webbing, ribbon; 1” swivel clip
  • 8”-11” neck- 55” long x 1” wide webbing, ribbon; 1” swivel clip
  • 6”-10” neck- 55” long x 5/8” wide webbing, ribbon; 5/8” swivel clip
  • 4”-6” neck- 55” long x ½” wide webbing, ribbon; ½” swivel clip

Materials:

  • 55” of nylon webbing
  • 55.5” of contrast ribbon
  • ¼ yd. glitter tulle
  • 1 rhinestone button, approximately 1”
  • 1 small elastic band
  • 1 swivel clip
  • Sewing machine
  • Coordinating thread
  • General sewing tools & iron
  • Butane lighter

Instructions:

Basic Leash

  1. Cut webbing and ribbon to length indicated in size chart.
     
  2. Carefully melt short ends of webbing with lighter to prevent fraying.
     
  3. Turn under ¼” on short ends of ribbon; press.
     
  4. Lay webbing right side up; lay ribbon right side up over webbing; pin in place.
     
  5. Topstitch ribbon to webbing 1/8” inside edges of ribbon.
     
  6. Thread right end of leash through clip so there is 1” of leash on wrong side of leash.
     
  7. Topstitch ¼” from end.
     
  8. To form a handle, on the opposite end of leash, fold 6” to wrong side.
     
  9. Topstitch ¼” from end of leash.

Flower Trim

  1. Rotary cut three strips of tulle to the following measurements: 3”x16”; 2.5”x16”; 2”x16”.
     
  2. Right sides together, seam the short ends of each strip together.
     
  3. With a warm iron, press seam to one side. Begin folding the 3” wide strip in half horizontally with right sides out, pressing fold in place. When pressing, use extreme caution- a too warm iron will melt tulle.
     
  4. Repeat for remaining two strips of tulle.
     
  5. Layer the strips one on top the other, with the widest on the bottom, then the middle strip and the narrowest strip on top. Pin together.
     
  6. ¼” from raw edges, sew one row of basting around strip, through all layers, keeping raw edges even.
     
  7. Sew another row of basting ¼” from first row.
     
  8. Pull up gathering tightly, until there is no hole in the center. Tie off threads.
     
  9. By hand, sew button to center of flower; sew elastic band securely to back center of flower.
     
  10. To finish leash, thread flower over handle end of leash to desired position.
