Ever wonder what to do with all those old stuffed animals??
Well, I personally couldn't wait till my children were through with some of their cute and cuddly childhood friends!
I simply re-purposed them into 'puppets' and coupled them up with a corresponding storybook to share with the children in my preschool classroom.
Just take a pair of scissors and cut the bear to make an access point for your arm. Every animal will have a different access point which you will have to determine.
Next, remove the stuffing and sew the edge where you made your cut. Consider either sewing the edge or using Stitch-Witchery (an iron on hemming ribbon)
...now Mr. Bear gets to stay!!
