Everybody loves balloon animals, but eventually they deflate and the fun is over. Make your own plush balloon animals, and the party never has to end!
Upcycle a pair of kid's tights into fun new toys, that make a very sweet gift. No sewing skills are required - just the ability to tie some knots. The best part is, each animal only takes one leg from the tights, so you can make two!
These toys are soft, squishy, and perfect for young children or old. So grab a pair of tights, channel your inner clown, and let's get started!
