The bunny and dress just became this for my Mother-in-law's beach cottage...
My MIL asked me to make an old dress of hers into a pillow 6+ months ago. What she wasn't expecting is for me to use a stuffed animal that she had given the kids, 2 Easters ago, to be used as the stuffing!!! hehe. Yes, I know what you are thinking 'mother of the year stealing her kids' stuffed animals for stuffing'....but seriously, why do they need a 3' tall bunny????
I would of never thought of this idea on my own...I am not that evil... but it got a hole in one of the seams and the batting was falling out. Low and behold--FREE STUFFING!!
Since I have such a hard time throwing things away I don't feel so bad that I was able to reuse the insides for another purpose and NOW the bunny is in the trash!!!
Total cost for this project: $0
Backing: Is the skirt portion
Pillow casing is an old sheet (left over from the Kid's Bathroom)
Trim: Left over from pillows I made my mom
Now, who else needs some pillows because I have a lot more stuffed animals???? Just kidding...sort of!
I was also able to complete #17 on my Getting Back on Track List...I am really knocking this list out!!!
Again I am participating in Kimm's Reinvented Tuesday. Go check out some other great projects!
