Final weekend I used to be cleansing out my closets and rapidly created a pile of t-shirts that I didn’t want. Through the years I’ve collected my fair proportion of wearable memorabilia from faculty occasions, walk-a-thons, and holidays.
Earlier than I introduced the garments to the Salvation Military, I puzzled if there was something artful that I may do with the shirts.
Impressed by Real Canine Gear’s Jersey Tugmaster, I made a decision that I’d attempt my hand at making a tug toy for my pups. I picked out a blue t-shirt that I hadn’t worn in years and began by reducing it into strips.
The width you chop relies on how thick you need the tug toy to be. My canines like thinner tugs, so I reduce the strips about 2 inches large. I took six strips and doubled them as much as make three strands. Then I bunched them collectively, tied a knot on the finish, braided the center, and tied one other knot on the different finish.

The toy truly got here out higher than I assumed. And since I had further materials left, I made a decision to attempt one other model with a deal with. This time I reduce longer strands and didn’t double up. As I obtained to the top, I made a loop and wove the unbraided finish into the braided part and tied a pair knots to safe the deal with.
Tug toys aren’t low-cost, and since I deliver them with me to agility trials and to class, I’m all the time misplacing them. Or if I’m not cautious, my pup Nemo finds them and makes the tug toy right into a chew toy. This craft is a straightforward approach to reuse previous t-shirts whereas making an reasonably priced toy for the canines.
