Making Your Own Dog Leash

Those padded dog leashes are great, and easy on the hands, but expensive! So I made my own version, using clothesline rope. I cut three lengths of clothesline, each four times as long as the finished leash.

I purchased a clasp from the hardware store, and ran all three lengths of clothesline through the opening of the clasp, so both ends were even. This gave me six pieces to braid. Then I braided the entire length, holding two pieces together as I braided. I turned back about ten inches at the finished end to make a handle, and taped around the raw ends for about four inches to reinforce the handle.


I love this leash! It's sturdy, soft, and gentle on my hands.

Sorry, but I have to ask. I know how to braid 3 strands but how do you braid 6? Is there a special way?
