The time has come...
Well actually, it came a LONG time ago, but I have held onto some of the stuffed animals of my childhood since I can't seem to part with them. (Who really can throw out ALF???) They are stuffed away at the top of a bookcase at my mother's house. There's maybe half a dozen or so of them, various sizes and styles. I love them all, but since I'm, er-hum, a grown up now (and for arguably the last 11 years), I need to find something to do with them.
Maybe a quilt, though that seems kinda gross to have a bunch of animal heads on a blanket...
I don't know... Any Ideas??
They are old, so I don't see just giving them away... no one would want them! hehehe

I WELCOME your creative ideas! Smiley

Well, you could always make some pants, a-la Flea (from the Red Hot Chili Peppers), circa early 1990's.

It's impossible to find a picture. This is the best I could do. It was apparently also the best this guy could do, too. :p

You could make a stuffed animal fur coat. LOL. Just kidding. Although you could do like a scarf or something.. Maybe that would be too weird.. Could mount the heads on hats. Or you could just behead them and use the heads as ornaments or something. I have a bunch of stuffed animals too that I just can't get rid of. So I will definitely be watching this post.

Long time ago on craftster, someone mentioned buying stuffed animals as an alternative to buying horrendously expensive faux fur for projects. But hey, I'm older than you are, and I've still got a few from my childhood up on top of my wardrobe. I could never gut them!

Are you sure family kids won't like them? I was delighted to get my grandma's doll and to see my mom's teddy bear.

Well the stuffed animals are quickly approaching 30 years old, so I don't know that I'd pass them along... I might just have to throw them out (after all... my significant other DID throw out most of his extensive t-shirt collection)... I might keep my Raggedy Ann & Andy though... could always use them for xmas decorations Smiley

30 years old? May be worth getting them valued before you throw them out!
