If you have a four-legged friend living at home, then you have come to the right place. The video lesson presented here will help to make your beloved dog happy with a new and pleasant toy. As you know, dogs love to chase the ball and play with it. The tennis ball is ideal for this application, so it is most often used. But here, this ball is not just improved, but changed into a more effective and fun toy.
It will take a maximum of 20-30 minutes to do this toy for a dog. Therefore, do not be lazy and make an excellent fun “ball-bone” for your beloved pet. So, starting to manufacture, we will prepare the following materials:
- fleece fabric;
- tennis ball;
- thread with a needle;
We take fleece fabric and cut it into two strips of a width of about 16 cm. The length can reach up to 50 cm, depending on the length of the braid you want to make. Cut out the following form from it:
Put the tennis ball in the rounded part of one strip so that the center of the strip is on the side. We pin with the pins the shape of the ball, leaving an empty space where the two strips join. We take out the ball and stitch it in the marked places. It is desirable to make a seam-zigzag, since it must be both dense and elastic.

After having sewn one lane, we do the same with the second. But, this time we place the ball in the fleece strip that has already been sewn, and only then we put all this on the rounded part of the second strip. The remaining ends must be between themselves and eventually close the ball from four sides.
The first workpiece is tied in a knot. We insert it into the second stitched strip with the opposite direction of the seam, and also fasten it.
Next, we can proceed to weaving. To make the toy thicker, you can put additional fleece strips on the blank. Lay the strips of the cross. Turn the first corner and impose on the second. The second impose on the third nearby, and so in a circle. The fourth is laid under the first. It should make a kind of square.
All ends gently and gradually tighten. As a result, if you look at the knot from above, you should get a small square with alternating colors of the fabric. Continue until the end of the strips.
When the length is about 10-15 cm, you can finish the braid with several paired knots. To make the toy even more interesting, we make several cuts at the ends of the strips.
The toy turns out quite dense. Due to the fact that two layers of fleece are used here, the ball will not crack and the spit will last longer under the force of the teeth. She can play even with large dogs, for example, with a shepherd dog. Your pet will be happy and grateful for such a toy.
