Oooh, I'm digging the origami elephant and crane ideas. A turtle too! Well, I'm off to buy some blank t-shirts on Thursday so I might have to use them.
And cajunclover, unfortunately yes it was already that shape. I'm horrendously lacking in the sewing skills department. It's probably something I should look into, actually. Maybe I'll buy a pattern and some cheap fabric whilst I'm buying t-shirts.
