How To Make A Stuffed Animal Change Purse
Do you have some old stuffed animals lying around that nobody plays with anymore? Why not turn it into an adorable change purse? I found this awesome tutorial on Instructables.com, and it’s perfect for me, because I have so many stuffed animals from my childhood lying around my house. You’d think by now I wouldn’t have just thrown them all out or given them away, but I just can’t part with them. So now, I can recycle them into products I’ll actually use. Here’s the tutorial:
- a stuffed animal with a long seam
- a zipper
- seam ripper
- a sock
- glue gun
Step 1: Use the seam ripper to rip out the seam that you will put the zipper on.
Step 2: Cut the sock a few inches from the toe.
Step 3: Now it’s time to glue the sock in. Glue it to the edge of the animal, but leave room for the zipper.
Step 4: Continue to glue the sock around the edge until you have reached the place where you started.
Step 5: Now for the zipper! When you flue the zipper on, be sure that you don’t glue the part that the zipper runs along, otherwise it would never zip.
Step 6: Now all you need are coins to fill it!
Okay, it’s your turn! Post a link to a picture of your stuffed animal change purse in the comments section below, and we might hook you up with 100 Swag Bucks! Have fun!
