Step 1: Supplies Used
Two pairs of pants
Step 2: Remove Zippers
Removed the zippers from the bottom of the pant legs. We don't want our baby chewing on these.
Step 3: Cut
We wanted as much fabric as possable. Cut legs off of both pairs of pants.
Step 4: Fold
Fold three of the pant legs so they are somewhat the same width.
Step 5: Sew
Hand sew the ankle ends together
Step 6: Braid and Sew
Braid the three strands together. Keep the braid as tight as possable. It is helpful to have someone help hold the ankle end while you braid.
After you are done braiding hand sew the end.
Step 7: Happy Dog
Look how happy our fur baby is!
