This will show you how to make a quick (10-minute), cuddly audio accessory out of a pair of cheap headphones and two small stuffed animals. Not much in the way of skills is necessary.
Your friends and acquaintances will coo with delight!
Step 1: Procure the Supplies.
What you will need:
-One pair cheap headphones (mine were of the 5-dollar Amtrak variety, I believe), preferably small-ish with removable foam ear discs, although this is not a necessity.
-Two stuffed animals. You want these to be medium-small and (preferably) cheap. I don't want you cutting into any Steiff bears, now. You'll save yourself loads of time if the animal has a seam up it's back. You can find them in places like drugstores and five-and-dimes.
-Needle and thread
-Fabric glue (optional. I didn't use any, but it's up to you.)
Step 2: Un-Suture the Poor Bastards.
Use the seam ripper to tear through that handy back-seam, pulling out cut threads as you go. If you didn't get an animal with a back-seam, well, shame on you. In this case, I would suggest you make a very neat, straight cut along where the back-seam would be if it had one (down the middle of the toy's back). You don't necessarily need to undo the whole seam, just enough to fit the earpiece of the headphone in. Remember to take care and make it neat, because you're going to have to sew it all back up again in a moment. If your stuffed animal seems ill-at-ease, reassure it with a comforting pat on the head and tell it, in soothing tones, that everything will be all-right.
Repeat for second animal.
