For dog toys:
First toy: Cut a 5 to 10 inch square of recycled denim from old faded blue jeans. The size will depend on how big your dog is.
Roll into a tight roll.
Tie tightly in 2 places with heavy cotton string or the double seam part of the blue jeans that you have cut into narrow strips.
Second toy: Stuff an old sock into the toe area of another sock. Tie a knot to hold it in. Use small socks for small dogs and large socks for large dogs. They love to play tug with them and shake them around.
For cat toys, use a 2 to 3 inch square of old jeans or fabric. Roll up and tie both ends, but leave one tie long so you don't get scratched when playing with them. You can put a small amount of Catnip in the center before rolling it up.
Our dogs and cats love them! When they get dirty and slobery just throw them in the washer with your jeans. If they come unrolled, no problem, just tie them up again.
