This is a fun and quick project with lots of personality! It makes a great accessory -- pin it on your suit or purse, or even pin it to your hair (with bobby pins, of course!). If you forgot to get your friend a present for her birthday, this will make a quick gift.
Use your accidentally-shrunken sweater or one that has one too many moth holes.
