Simple Projects-Easy Denim Tug Toy

This is definitely not a new idea and plenty of bloggers have probably already made this toy, but its very easy and dogs really do love it.

All you need is a scissors and a pair of old jeans

Cut five strips from the jeans legs, 3 long and two short.  IF your jeans are for a short person lie me then make sure you cut the whole leg for the long strips or they wont be long enough.  

Put the three long strips together and use a short strip to tie it off very tightly:

Braid the long strips tightly and tie off with the second short strip.    Five minute tug toy:

Now have fun.
