I made a soft toy corgi into a handbag for my daughter.

The idea for this project was to use only things that other people had thrown away. I bought the toy from the local op shop (thrift store) for AUD$2, the fabric, zipper and stuffing for the handles also came from op shops and the fabric for the inner bag was given to me by a friend (who was planning on giving it to the op shop, lol). The total cost was about $2.50 and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and my daughter loves it.

Great idea!!! We see those "pocket book animals" in the stores all the time and they are soooo expensive.

Now that I can see how easy it is to make these myself I have the answer to what to do with my grandson's collection of hundreds of stuffed animals that are piled up everywhere!!!
