It is so simple to make that even kids can put it together. It is a great project for fetes and fundraisers too.​

What you need:

20 1 inch x 20 inch (2.5 cm x 50 cm) recycled stretch knit from pants or tops in assorted colors.


You can use recycled stretch knit from old t-shirts or pants or if you like you can use new fabric.

Cut the fabric into 20 pieces that measure approx 1 inch x 20 inch (2.5 cm x 50 cm) for a large dog.

For smaller dogs reduce the length and quantity but not the 1 inch width.

Lay your pieces together in 2 sections of 10. Twist the 2 sections together and tie a large knot at each end as shown in the picture. Your knot should be tight and secure.

There is no need for gluing or sewing.

Alternatively you can plat your strands together or add extra knots depending on your dogs desire.
