Use a macrame-type braid to construct a sturdy, eco-friendly dog toy. Crafter Faith Hale demonstrates this simple-yet-satisfying technique, and you can use purchased T-shirt yarn or yarn that you’ve made out of a T-shirt that has outlived its use as a garment. The toy shown is excellent for small-to-medium sized dogs but Faith instructs how to make simple swaps for a custom size
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • For two-color toy, 60 feet each of two colors of t-shirt yarn such as Hooked Zpagetti or Wool and the Gang Jersey Be Good. 
  • For six-color toy, two strands each of six colors that are five feet long
  • Scissors
  • To make your own T-shirt yarn, watch Faith’s Make T-shirt Yarn Class 
Learn how to:
  • Work with T-shirt yarn
  • Braid a dog toy
  • How to modify the pattern for different sized dogs
