When I read about Lu & Ed’s Transformation Tuesday posts, I thought, “Why am I not doing this? It’s such a great idea!“ So, I was inspired to cut up my felt scraps into tiny bits to blend into my stuffing, too.
I have a few shoeboxes of felt scraps — normally, I just toss my scraps into a shoebox to dig through later in case I need tiny bits to make donut toppings, like the little bacon bits pictured above! Or blueberries, leaves, melon stems, and so on.
Since reading Lu & Ed’s Transformation Tuesday post, I started taking a little bit of time to cut up scraps I wouldn’t be able to use as donut toppings and putting them into a separate shoebox so I can blend them with my polyfil stuffing for plush donuts.
They’re… donut crumbs!
I think this is a great process for anyone who makes any kind of stuffed or plush item! Also, if you don’t already, follow Cody on Twitter and her blog, Lu & Ed — she’s super inspiring and makes awesome things!
