DIY Dog Toy Made From T-shirts!

There are so many types of dog toys on the market, but sometimes you pup just wants to play with your slipper? Am I right?

So instead of giving up your favorite slippers to the dog, why not make your own dog toy?
First, you'll need two old t-shirts. I picked two that were different colors!
Then, spread out the t-shirt and cut small slits in the t-shirts (about an inch or two long).
Using the slits you just cut, rip each of them off of the t-shirt by simply just pulling them up to create a bunch of strips.  (I was hesitant at first, but it works like magic.) . You will not need the sleeve part of your shirts.
Once you have enough of both colors, bundle them together and tie a knot at the top.

Once the knot is in place, split the strips of t-shirt into 3 and braid them.  (If you don’t know how to braid you may need to google it.)
Tie a knot at the end with one of the strips.
How cute is that?  
A dog toy made in 5 minutes that cost zero dollars.  You can play tug of war, fetch, or just let them carry it around like a blanket!
What types of toys do your pups love?
We will fetch you next time! :)
