My dogs love stuff toys.  And luckly they're the type of dogs that wont rip or tear toys apart.  So, I thought I'd make a bunch of toys for them to enjoy.  Again no pattern used.  Just your basic dog bone shape cut out of fabric.  Smiley I made lots of extras so when they get dirty or dog breath smelly and are in the process of being washed I can grab a clean one from their toy box for them to play with.  I had all the fabric and stuffing already so it didnt cost me anything to make them.  Its a great way to use small pieces of fabric too!  I made girly ones for my little lady and the tattoo ones were more for my little man.  But, they share all their toys so design wise it doesnt really matter.  Smiley

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

These came out so nice!  I tried sewing some dog bones...the first one looked like a capital 'I' and the second one looked more like a balloon animal of a dog than the bone it was supposed to be.

Procrastination is killing me slowly...I'm going to put an end to that first thing tomorrow!

I made a really nice dog bone for my boyfriend's dog. He, unfortunately, likes to rip and chew EVERYTHING, so instead of just doing a layer of fabric, I did about 3 layers of felt and then fabric! Luckily, the dog bone is still alive! and he loves it!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Awesome! Good idea about making plenty of them. This would be a great project for left over scraps.
