If you’ve been cleaning and realised you have some old t-shirts that just aren’t hitting that style marker anymore, then this DIY project is perfect for you! Instead of just tossing the t-shirts or donating them, you can reuse them and craft together a new toy for your four-legged best friend. It’s sustainable and a fun weekend project!
Scroll down and follow our 6 easy steps below on how to make your very own DIY dog toy.
What You’ll Need:
Two old t-shirts (preferably crew neck or V-neck)
- DIY dog toy in 6 simple steps:
Get two different coloured cotton t-shirts and some scissors
Cut 2-3 inch wide slits along the bottom hem of your shirts
Rip along each slit to create the strips. Reserve two strips to tie at each end of the dog toy
Gather all strips together and use one of the reserved strips to tie them tightly together
Separate the strips into three equal sections and braid together.
When you get near the end of the fabric use the second reserved strip to tie the ends together tightly. Cut off any uneven pieces of fabric. Now go play with your dog!
