Your dog will love this great idea for a homemade toy from your old jeans.

What you will need:

  • Old Jeans
  • Scrap Cardboard
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Tough needle and thread
  • Sewing pins
  • Cushion stuffing

Step 1: Cut off the back pockets of jeans and trim so there is no excess fabric visible

Step 2: Place one of the pockets on to the cardboard & draw a turtle head and legs (the point of the pocket will be the turtle tail)

Step 3: Draw around the pocket, take it away, then draw a second outline around head and legs adding on 2 cm for seam allowance.

Step 4: Cut out the head and leg template from the card, now use the templates to draw out shapes on the reverse side of denim.

Step 5: Cut out all of the pieces pair them up and pin together.

Step 6: Sew together the two head shapes and then all the legs using a tight stitch, leave an edge open for stuffing. Stuff your stuffing and then sew up the gap.

Step 7: Stuff the pocket body of your turtle sew up any gaps and let your pooch enjoy.
