Make An Awesome Dog Toy Yourself Using Old T-Shirts

Bridget-671x421

With a couple old t-shirts and a little bit of time in your day, you can make a quick and easy toy to prevent mischievous boredom in your canine companion. Who knows? Your pooch might find your handmade creation quite… fetching.

Directions:

For this project, the only things you need are two t-shirts and a pair of scissors. Have a couple old shirts lying around with a stain or two? This is the perfect project to reuse them!

Start by cutting little 2-3” wide slits at the base of your shirts. After you’ve cut your slits, just rip along the slit and your t-shirt will have the perfect strips of fabric for the next step.

Gather your t-shirt strips and tie off one end. Divide your strips into thirds and braid them together.

Once you’ve braided down to the other end, tie up the bottom and cut any straggling t-shirt strips.

Whether this toy comes in handy during an epic tug-of-war battle or serves as a distraction to keep your pooch’s mind from wandering to the smelly trash can and dreams of gnawing the legs off the couch– it’s a simple and fun way to make something special for your four-legged friend.
