Any dog who likes to chew will love this toy. It's tough and durable and easy to make from old cotton dish towels. No sewing involved, just cutting, plaiting, and tying.


  • 3 old dish towels (tea towels)
  • scissors


  1. Trim the hems from the long edges of each dish towel.
  2. Roll up each towel from the cut edge.
  3. Make the rolls as tight as you can.
  4. Hold the rolls at one end.
  5. Tie the ends together tightly with one of the trimmed hems.
  6. Make a firm plait.
  7. Tie the rolls together at the other end.
  8. Have fun with the dog.

Denim strips from old jeans work really well

Please do not allow your pet to play with this unattended!! I had a co-worker whose dog chewed up & swallowed part of a towel (unbeknown to the owner at the time).


By the time the very sick dog was finally diagnosed it was too late & the dog couldn't be saved. You would be amazed at what dogs will swallow!!
