Everybody has a few unworn t-shirts drifting around in the back of a drawer. Why not give them new life by transforming them into dog toys with the help of this photo tutorial from Yarn Miracle ?
For this project, all you will need is a couple t-shirts and a pair of scissors (please remove any cats before continuing). I was able to make two big toys from three large t-shirts.
Get your assistant to come back and hold the knot while you braid the strips together (just like hair). Never braided anything? Nothing to it - here's a tutorial.
Tie an overhand knot to secure the loose ends and trim them with the scissors. If the braid is nice and long, another knot can be made in the center.
Your toy is ready to share with your dog! (That's actually our former foster dog, Chickpea - but we've got a couple puppies as house guests right now.)
If you don't have a resident dog (or you have a surplus of t-shirts), make a whole pile of them to take to your local shelter!
