Any pointers for sewing "Dog Leash" nylon webbing ?
any machine recomendations , needls, threads ?

I want to make some longer dog leashes, and also some carrying handles, for
some of the boy scout equipment bags that I have (crudely) created.
My wife's plastic kenmore won't even try...

Robin-I have sewed some of this webbing on old mechanicals and it worked well. Use a longer stitch, a heavy needle ( 16 - 18) and go over the stitching several times. Works like a charm and strong enough to hold a pit bull

I've sewn numerous dog collars which has the nylon webbing inside and fabric on the outside. I've sewn these with my plastic low end Kenmore with no problems. You need to use a long stitch. Tension has to be looser on the top and bottom. I don't do anything special with thread or needles. I normally use Clark & Coat thread and a ball point 10/70 needles. The pressure foot should be able to guide over the top.

I prefer a 14 or 16 needle, I've never had a problem sewing webbing on any machine I've had, if it's too thick, it sometimes won't fit under the presser foot. If the webbing frays, sear the ends with a match.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

I use a thick denim needle (14 or 16), poly thread, and put a little Sewer's Aid on the needle so it slides through the webbing.
