What You’ll Need:
• Snap hook (If you decide to make a dog leash).
• A variety of materials can be used: string, rope, gardening twine or even discarded fishing line. This dog leash is made with leather lace from the hobby store.
What You’ll Do:
1. Decide how long you want your dog leash to be, and cut a piece of leather lace about two-and-a-half times the finished length.
Apply tape to the end of your new rope to keep it from unraveling. Use any type of strong twine to make a whipping knot as shown. Wrap the twine as tight as you can and pull the loop about halfway under the wraps. Trim any extra twine flush with the edge of the knot. Cut off the taped end. Leave some cordage protruding beyond the knot (about the diameter of the cordage in length). You can apply some glue to the knot to make it extra strong.
