I got so many receiving blankets at my baby shower and who knew a baby's feet would dangle out from them after a month. So, I'll be cutting most of them up and making a larger blanket--like a quilt, almost. There are others--which I've already recycled into burp cloths.
And here's what I did with one..
Fiber fill is so expensive at a craft store, so I thrifted a bag of stuffed animals for $1 and tore up the ugly ones, soaked the fiber in bleach solution overnight then rinsed and let it thoroughly dry.
I'm no professional stuffed-toy-maker, but I think Benji likes it.
