Anyone good at basic sewing?

Using fleece offcuts - or even cheap fleece blankets, it's easy to make simple dog toys.

Cut out bone shapes {or even something more exciting!} and sew them together, you can add a squeaker too to make them more interesting, easily obtainable from E-bay


or these people {I've bought from them before and they are very good http://www.clicksmilies.com/s0105/grinser/grinning-smiley-003.gif}


Waterproof fabric would be great for playing at the park etc...

There's some lovely camouflage fleece offcuts suitable for boy dogs here!!

Sometimes fabric shops have suitable offcuts, they also usually sell stuffing [although most material shops sell it too]

I'm sure there would be a lot of interest in these on here...

Look forward to some photos of completed articles!!
