If you are anything like me you have a bunch of old t-shirts laying around. I have two drawers full of them, mostly free ones from events I have attended, and to be honest I don't wear them often enough to keep them. In my search for upcycling projects for my collection I came across these great instructions for turning those old shirts into a tug toy for your dog!
It is an insanely simply project that can be completed in less than an hour. You can even make a few of them in an afternoon so your pup always has a spare! What a fun and simple gift to make for Fido's stocking!

What You Will Need:
old t-shirts (use a few for a colorful toy, or one for a solid color)

Step 2: Gather all 12 strips together and tie a knot at one end.
Step 3: Divide the strips into 3 groups of 4 strips, and begin to braid down the length of the strips.
Step 4: Gather all strips at end and tie a knot.
