Project

Bear Bookend

Introduction

What's an old bear to do when your baby only has eyes for his stuffed giraffe? He can become a handsome bookend. Use a seam ripper to open the fabric at the animal's seat. Stuff his bottom with rocks, then resew the seam carefully so no rocks can spill out. At night, when no one is looking, he can catch up on his reading.

    This is a really cute idea! How often do you find a child's room full of stuffed animals that are not being played with. This is a perfect idea to display them as well as use them.
