Where to Serve

From Home/Anywhere*


Collect and organize supplies! If you are using a zip tie then make the diameter of the ring about 1 inch long, and cut off tail end leaving just the circle. Take the square piece of fleece and cut it into 12-14 strips. Use additional fabric if necessary to cover ring. Tie strips onto the ring. Please double knot it for extra safety. Continue tying fleece to the ring until you cannot see any part of it. Submit completed projects to PH: 361 S. Raymond Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105 Note: Must monitor pet when they play with this toy.
