Stuffed Bunny Ear Transplant June 15, 2017 – Posted in: money saving tips, recycled, sewing, softies, stuffed animals, toys
Summer vacation is rough!!! I (laughably) thought it might be easier this year because I actually downsized from being with 20 kids all day to just 5. Hahahahaha! Dealing with 5 of my own kids is entirely different. They aren’t used to being with each other all day so they need to reestablish the pecking order. It is taking longer than usual with the hormones raging in this house these days (oh, just a sample of what is to come, I know!) Now we have a heat wave and my car is in the garage. It has been quite the week!
So, if you are wondering where I have been, I am probably hiding- locked in my bedroom and curled up in the fetal position with a bag of chocolate chips.
OK. Not really.
I have ice cream.
Every now and then I get ambitious/drink extra coffee and try do something fun. Last week we went on our planned shopping excursion, but it took until 2pm or so to get them to clean their rooms so we could leave. Our first stop was the thrift store for a very specific purpose- bunny ears. The kids are waking up right now so I am going to let my 9yo do a little guest posting and tell you about it!
I have a stuffed bunny named Twinkle Toes. It is a Beanie Boo that has the same birthday as me. My aunts’ dog chewed off my bunnies’ ears. They don’t make these bunnies anymore so we couldn’t get a new one. My mom and I decided to go to the thrift store to find new ears. I found the perfect bunny. It’s ears were backwards! We all went home and mom washed the bunny. A few days later, my mom seam ripped what was left of the ears on Twinkle Toes. She also cut the ears off of the 2nd bunny. She sewed the ears on Twinkle Toes. We even added a pink flower! AGAIN, MOM SAVES THE DAY!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for posting for me today, Lydia! I am happy that I could fix your bunny for you!
