2. Trace the solid lines of the bone pattern onto tracing paper. Cut out the shape. For a larger bone, enlarge the pattern to the size you'd like; then trace and cut.

3. Pin the pattern to one of the animal-print furs. Cut out the bone shape from the fur. Cut a second bone shape from the other piece of animal-print fur.

4. Pin the bone shapes together with the fur sides facing each other. Note: Sew seams 1/4-inch from the raw edges. Sew around the edges of the bone, leaving a 4-inch opening in the middle of one of the long straight edges.

5. Turn the bone right side out. Wrap each squeaker toy in polyester fiberfill. Insert a squeaker in each end of the bone through the opening.

6. Stuff the rest of the bone firmly with fiberfill. Then, use a needle and thread to sew the opening closed.
