This DIY dog toy is simple to sew and can be made from scraps of fabric you have lying around the house. Your furry friend will love having a new toy to play with, and the time you spent making it together will make it that much more special!
- Non fraying fabric such as microfibre fleece (Why not use an old fleece jumper?)
- Stuffing (You can use anything you'd like for stuffing such as extra fabric, or, if you get raw food, the wool that comes inside works really well!
Use a heart template to trace onto your fabric. Then, you will need to cut around 5cm (2 Inches) further out than this original line. (Pic 1& 2)
Place the two fabric hearts together, and cut strips, about 2cm wide, into the drawn line. (Pic 3)
Take the corresponding strips from each piece, and double knot them, going round until you have a tiny gap left (I recommend leaving the gap on the straighter edge!
- Stuff with your filling of choice, and tie up the remaining strips.
That's it! the whole project for the first time took me only around 15 minutes, so the perfect choice for a quick last minute present idea too.
