My parents own a dog. Not just any dog; a BIG dog. Her name is Benthe.
|"That will be me!!"|
But what I can tell you about her is that she loves to chew on stuff. A lot. And if there are no dog toys around, She'll happily go off and search for something else to chew on, like gloves.
In order to stop her from chewing on all my dad's working gloves, I decided to make Benthe a little present. And I had just the material for it: scraps.
I gathered all the scraps that were left of my previous crafting projects. I had quite a lot of it.
I cut three pieces of (stretch) fabric into long, and not too narrow strips. I then rolled the strips up, while filling them with all different kinds of scraps to give them some extra volume.
I then simply braided them together, pulling the braid very tightly to make sure that Benthe's jaws of destruction wouldn't destroy my efforts on seconds.
I then made a knot on both sides, and shredded the ends. By making little knots on the ends, I created a nice, fraying effect.
Easy as that!
I hope your own canine ( or feline) pals will enjoy this little craft!
