Introduction: Cute Stuffed Animal Change Purse!

Picture of Cute Stuffed Animal Change Purse!

During this instruct able, I'm going to show you how to make an adorable change purse out of a stuffed animal. Let's get started!!!! I have so many animals, i decided to make this little purse.

1. What did you make?
I made a change purse out of a stuffed animal. I wanted to find a project that uses stuffed animals, since i have so many. Originally, i was going to just make it and use it for myself, but then i thought maybe other people would like to make one also!!
The materials i used were: Old stuffed animal, scissors, a zipper, an old sock, a seam ripper, and a hot glue gun.

2.How did you make it?
I'm not sure where i got the idea. I was thinking about what i could make with a stuffed animal, and BOOM! I had an idea!!  I made the purse at home by myself.

3. Where did you make it?
I made it at home in my bedroom. I saw a lot of cool stuffed animal projects on this website, so i wanted to add to that.

4. What did you learn?
I learned that something that is trash can be used to make really cool stuff. The hardest part of making this was gluing the zipper on. I accidentally glued the part where the zipper runs along and i had to get a new zipper. My favorite thing about this purse is that it is cute and practical. If I did it again, i would try to make the glue show less. Most importantly, i had fun while making this!

Step 1: Materials!!!!

Now for the zipper!  When you glue the zipper on, be sure that you don't glue the part that the zipper runs along! Otherwise, it would never zip!!

I made mine a lot different. didn't use hot glue and just took out the middle so you could still see what it was. even gave it Diamond earrings, hand cuff chain for zipper and I'm gonna make it a necklace. lol
