not sure if this is the right area to post this...so sorry if it's not!!
...i made a little stuffed animal bunny today, (i don't have a camera to post a pic-sorry!)...anyways i was thinking of easter (i know it's a long ways off, but...)...and i was thinking i could make a TON of those little bunnies and take 'em to the local women's shelter for them to put in the easter baskets (i know there are a lot of children there)...the bunnies would be little fabric bunnies approx 5-6" tall with a little pom-pom tail and embroidered eyes and nose...i drew a really simple pattern, but i think it came out pretty darn cute....so i'm wondering if that's a good idea or do you think it's kind of lame?? i appreciate the input! thanks!

also...does anyone have any ideas for a really inexpensive place to buy stuffing for stuffed toys?? thanks!!

This is my first post ever  Cool but I was suprised no one else had replied. This is a rockin' idea! I imagine those women and their children would be incredibly appreciative. Good luck!

(BTW, I have no idea about cheap stuffing.)  Tongue

That sounds like a really cute idea! Who doesn't love free crafts? Pollyfill stuffing is pretty cheap at JoAnn's - about $2 for a descent sized bag. It would probably fill 10 bunnies, if they were flattish. You might be able to get someone to donate the stuffing, since it's for charity.

Plus, if you get your stuffing at Joanns, they always have 40% off coupons.  I think that's a really sweet idea.  Kudos to you for thinking of it.
