Make dog toys with plastic water bottles and old or unused clothing items such as socks, t-shirts, leggings, scarves, hats, jackets, or bags! There are two variations of this toy: the first one is no-sew while the other requires sewing. You can also use different size water bottles according to the size of your dog (mini, normal, or jumbo size water bottles).
This is an inexpensive and very easy way to make some fun toys for your dog, and they also love the sound of the crinkling plastic too!
Step 1: Gather Materials for the No-sew Toy
An old sock and plastic water bottle
Step 2: Put Water Bottle Into the Sock
Step 3: Push Water Bottle All the Way In
Step 4: Tie the End in a Knot
Step 5: Gather Materials for the Sewing-required Toy
Scissors to cut the fabric, thread and needle, a marker, and any cloth you can come by (pants, leggings, scarves, hats, t shirts, jackets, bags, etc.)
Step 6: Measure and Cut
Flip your pieces of fabric inside out so the inside parts face outward, and lay flat on a table. Then place your water bottle on top of the fabric and mark where to cut (remember to leave some allowance as your water bottle will take up more space once inside). Cut your piece out and sew the sides, but make sure to leave one opening unsown. Flip inside out.
