Fabric Knots Dog Toy

Now that the weather is warming up and the snow is finally melting Huck can play outside again! I decided to celebrate by making him a bright new toy to toss around out back.



All you need for this is a variety of scrap fabric -
 I used 12 different kinds but you can use whatever you have


Start off by cutting the different fabric into strips about 1 - 2 inches wide.  I left the fabric long enough to tie the knots but we'll trim it up later

Start by crossing two strips into a + shape.  Tie the lower fabric into a knot around the upper fabric. 
Next, add another piece a fabric and attach by tying a knot using the fabric directly below it.


Continue doing this until your fabric rope is as long and you want it. 

Now we can trim up all of the strips so their about 2 inches long.


Now get outside and play!


 I hope that your dog likes this as much as mine does!!

We love to hear what you guys think so please comment below!

Have a great day!

  1. Great idea! What breed is your dog? Mine is a beagle/yellow lab mix, we believe (he's a rescue)
