Default New leash and harness

I had an embroidery test patch from a dog carrier that I'm making for my daughter, and I didn't want it to go to waste. I turned it into a reversible harness, and I made a matching leash. I didn't have the snaps that I wanted to use, but they work.

It was hard to get the embroidery to show up well in the picture. The green fabric has little owls on it like the embroidery.

Thanks. I'm using a Singer XL-6000. They aren't made anymore. I have loved mine so I wonder why they stopped making them. I have a few machines, but that's my big embroidery machine. I don't do as much embroidery as I thought I would. I unexpectedly got very busy soon after I got that machine a few years ago.

Thank you so much. I try to make things fit her exactly since the store bought things always need altering. I may as well start from scratch.

The print is small owls in a row. It's just that print on the other side. I covered the white snaps on the owl print side so they don't show up when the harness is on.

I'm waiting for the hardware for the dog carrier before I can finish it. I used the same fabrics and some other ones too. I can't wait until it's done because it looks cute so far.

I think it's adorable! I love how you made a "test patch" work into a cute vest.

I have a Singer Futura that embroideries - the needle broke three months after I purchased it and the machine stopped working properly. Singer wants too much money to align the machine so now it sits in the closet. I'm using a very old Singer now but miss the embroidery. Oh to own a Bernina - the machine of my dreams - lol.

I hope you post pics of the carrier - I'd love to see it too!
