DIY Natural Wool Bone Dog Toy
I used undyed wool broadcloth fabric for the wool dog toy but you can use other wool fabric as well. The fabric scraps were leftover from my Victorian wool coat.
The tying technique for the wool toy is the same one that I’ve already used for my DIY denim bone dog toy.
Cut the wool fabric into 3″ (7cm) wide and 44″ (110cm) long strips. The finished toy measures about 9″ (22cm).
If the strips are too short, you can easily join them together without sewing or knots: Cut a slit into each end of the two strips you want to join. Then thread the strips through each other like in the picture above.
You need four wool strips for the toy. Temporarily secure the wool strips together with an elastic.
Tie Crown Knots
Tie a series of crown knots until you reach the end of the strips. Watch my video below to learn how to tie crown knots.
At each end of the DIY wool bone dog toy tie two of the strips into an overhand knot. So you have two overhand knots at each end of the toy.
And your all-natural wool dog toy is finished: Now play with your eagerly waiting doggo!
