30 Minute Stuffed Animal
This 30 Minute Stuffed Animal is made using an old shirt! So, yours might not be an elephant if you're without an elephant shirt. However, we thought it was worth including in case you do or if you want to use this awesome and unexpected process for other shirts you might have. What a brilliant idea!
Indian Elephant Clutch Purse
