Molly Approved

Long time readers might remember me posting a year or so ago about sewing a dog toy for Molly that she ruined in 6 minutes. Last weekend I found the fleece I had bought to make dog toys with and decided to try again. I sandwiched fleece, quilt batting and cracker sleeve plastic and sewed crinkle Frisbee discs to make easy-to-throw toys. They were an instant hit. She loved them! Molly will play fetch until your arm falls off. The day after I sewed the toys I couldn't figure out why my arm was so sore. When I realized why I could only giggle.


Yes, my bed is covered with a sheet. Dog hair. Muddy footprints. 


She hasn't torn them up yet!


They crinkle as she bites and shakes them!


Yup, Molly approved dog toys. Go Mom!

I sewed a few extra for gifts and I have plenty of fleece to make a lot more...in between stitching and quilting projects.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!!!

That's great! I used to sew dog toys for our bigger dog. Since we have only two toy poodles now, I do NOT have to. ;)

Lucky Molly! She looks like she enjoys her toys!

Marie said...

What is Cracker Sleeve plastic? That toy is such a great idea and I bet Molly likes the noise it makes.

She's a cutie!

Lyn said...

I have never heard of cracker sleeve plastic. I have two dogs who love to play fetch. Baybee Gurl, our Boston Terrier, will tear a tennis ball to sheds in a very short amount of time. We finally bought a hand ball. She hasn't figured out a way to destroy it, yet. Rex is a Belgian Shepard that is barely a year. He loves fetch. He is so happy to play.

The look on Molly's face tells it all - She's in doggy toy heaven. ;-)
