Rope for active games
One of the most popular games is rope pulling. It is possible to weave a cord for a small dog from old T-shirts, a terry cloth robe or any other fabrics. To make the toy more attractive, you should use materials of different shades.
For weaving will require:
First, you should cut the clothes into 4 equal strips about 10 cm wide and 1 m long. After that, the strips should be stretched in different directions so that they become narrower, longer and slightly wrapped in tubules. It is important not to overdo it so as not to tear them. In addition, the material that is easily torn, should not be used to create toys. It is better to choose something more elastic.
Then the strips are tied on a knot, departing from the end by 7-10 cm, so that the cord is comfortable to hold in hand. Based on the photo 4, you need to expand the fabric in the shape of a cross. You can do the work both at home behind the desk and in the open air, holding the knot between the knees.
In the next step, turn the right lane to the left and the left lane to the right, on top of the yellow fabric. Thus, it turns out the English letter "S". Then the lower rope is threaded into the loop from the left above, and the upper one is opposite the right lower loop. You should get the same letter, only sideways.
After that you should gently tighten the loop, adjusting them to form a neat square in the center. Next, you need to repeat the steps with photos 5, 6 and 7 until the desired length of the toy is typed.
In total, this work takes 10-15 minutes. This weaving technique allows you to get a beautiful strip diagonally. It should be noted that there are a lot of ornamental varieties and each has its own weaving method. To create a toy for a large dog, it is recommended to use a rope rope, as it will tear the fabric very quickly. That’s all. It’s time to invite your pet to play.
The next master class will help make a toy for the dog so that it can play on its own when the owner does not have the time and opportunity to pay due attention to the pet.
To create such a pretty candy you need:
- any fabric (in this case a shirt is used);
- plastic bottle;
- several large beads;
- any rope or gum;
First, fill the beads in the bottle and screw on the cap. They can be replaced by small pebbles or dry food. The latter will give the toy a smell that will not leave the dog indifferent. You should not put a lot of beads in the bottle, as it will rumble and distract residents from work.
Then you need to measure how much fabric you need to wrap the bottle in it and cut off all the excess. You can make 2-3 candies from one shirt and give it to each pet, if there are several of them in the house.
After that, the bottle is wrapped in a piece of cloth and at both ends they tie tails on a bow, firmly fixing it inside.
It is not recommended to make large bows, as the dog may chew on them and the toy will become unusable. Long tips can be easily trimmed with scissors. This candy will appeal to small and medium-sized dogs. When holes appear in the bottle, it will quickly lose its shape and it is better to replace it. At this workshop is over.
Bone Shaped Toy
It is worth considering another option to create a toy from a plastic bottle in a bag in the shape of an appetizing bone.
To create will require:
- any fabric (in this case fleece);
- empty plastic bottle;
- sewing supplies.
First you should sew a case. It can be sewn or manually. Before you get started, you need to prepare templates. They can be drawn on cardboard by hand, or print any of the Internet. Photo 17 shows what details the cover consists of.
When the pattern for a dog toy is ready, it is recommended to grab the elements among themselves with the help of pins. The product will be more accurate if the fabric does not move to the side. On the template marked the fold line of one of the blanks. Wrap it up to this line and grab it with pins, as shown in Photo 18.

Options for large dogs
For a large pet, you can make toys for dogs as in photos 29 and 30. They are very similar, but they are made differently. In the first case, you will need to weave a rope from a strong rope. To do this, you should use the tips from the first master class in this article. Then take a tennis ball, with a knife, carefully cut a hole in it on both sides and put it on the rope, after tying a knot on it.

To create will require:
- thick rope rope about a meter;
- hot or superglue, to secure the ends;
- delicacy optional.
First, the rope must be wound on the arm as shown in photo 31. It is important that the loops formed are the same.
Then you should carefully remove the loop from your hand, holding the rope to maintain shape. Next, the long end of the rope is wrapped 3-4 times with the billet, forming the future ball.
After that, the end of the rope is threaded through the upper loops, thereby fixing them, and then again pull through the lower loops.
At the end of the loop, gently tighten to form a ball. The tip of the rope is hidden inside, fixing it with glue. On this toy for the dog is ready.
Bone from fleece for puppies
Not only adult dogs, but also puppies love to play. For a baby, you can make a pretty fleece bone, decorating it with various stripes or pet initials.
For tailoring you will need:
- fleece of two or three shades at will;
- synthetic winterizer as a filler;
- sewing supplies.
At the first stage it is necessary to make a pattern of a soft toy for a dog. The bone-shaped pattern can be found and downloaded from the Internet or drawn by hand on a piece of cardboard, and then attached to the base material and neatly cut. Just need two details.
Then, using a sewing machine, various elements are sewn to the blanks. These can be geometric shapes, initials, or any other patterns. In the absence of the machine, they can be sewn by hand or put on hot glue, applied to the very edges of the elements. You can also use a fabric with a ready-made ornament.
It is not recommended to retreat strongly from the edge of the figures. The scooping edges will give the toy an untidy look. To seams do not catch the eye, it is necessary to pick up the thread to match the fleece. When working manually, it is important to do small stitches, not retreating too far.
After this, the blanks are applied to each other with the decorated sides inward and stitched on a typewriter. It is necessary to leave a hole about 3-4 cm in the center of the bone, so that later it can be turned out and filled with padding polyester.
It is not recommended to fill the bone with cotton wool, as it is quickly tied up into lumps, but the product filled with padding polyester can be washed without problems. However, do not fill the toy too tightly. It must preserve its airy texture.
Upon completion of all work, you can give a gift to a puppy. He will be very happy and will be able not only to play, but also to sleep on such a convenient bone. It is important not to leave it for a long time without supervision, as the dog can tear the toy, but it is extremely not recommended for her to fill it.
