As we grown up, our old t-shirt and others stuffs get shorter to wear. So i decided to reuse them in a super cool way by makind a play stuf to my dog. This is a great way to recycle a few old t-shirts. If you have a dog, making an awesome dog toy out of old t-shirts is super easy, and free. So before running to the store to get a tug-of-war rope for your furry loved one, give this a try.

Lets begin!


Step 1: What You Will Need!

What you will need is three old, clean cotton or poly-blend t-shirts, in the colors of your choice. They would need to be all approximately the same size. You will also need a good pair of scissors, and a dog to play with the toy.

Step 2: Lay Out Your T-shirts

Lay out your t-shirts, one at a time. Cut them across into approximately one inch strips, like shown in the picture above. Go until you hit the sleeves at the armpit. Once you are done, you should have a bunch of strips of t-shirts.

Step 3: Cut the Strips

Once you are done cutting the shirts, you will have these circle one inch strips. Give them a snip in the middle to open them up. Look at the picture above.

Step 4: Braid Them Together

Now, braid them together in a simple braid. Get someone to hold one end to make it easier to braid.

Step 5: Tie a Few Knots

Once you are done braiding, separate the ends at each end of the braid into two and tie a few knots together to tie it off. Make sure the knots are nice and strong. Just trim the edges, make them nice and even.

Step 6: Now Ready to Be Played With!

Now your toy is all done and ready to be played with!

Here is my big puppy playing with the toy:
