Rope and Cords Dog Toy

2 Materials
30 Minutes

My old corduroy pants finally needed to be retired. My pup also goes through store bought toys in minutes. She needed something tough and durable. My pants lasted me a good 15 years... So my pup was in luck!

I first took some hemp rope from my garage and tied a couple loops in it for legs and a knot for the tail.

I then drew out and sewed a basic butterfly (four legs) on the cords. Leave a little gap at the bottom for the tail and a larger gap at the top to turn the fabric and create the head.

Cut it out, leaving some fabric at the top to turn into the head.

Turn it inside out through the head gap.

Finish turning it. You might want to shove a spoon or other tool to ensure the fabric turns completely around the legs. Then pull the rope through.

Sew the head closed and enjoy! My pup has been chewing it for the past two weeks.
