We all have many gadgets floating around in our messenger bags, getting all scratched up in the daily grind. Then we think we should get them a cozy little pocket of warmth but decide after looking at the price, "life was simpler" when all these gadgets didn't weigh us down. However, the cell phone is a must for someone like me that’s never home. Dear ol' ma wouldn't get to talk to me otherwise. And the MP3 player plays the soundtrack of my days. So I decided that my technology needed a new look if they we going to hang out with me. And now these little monsters are getting so much attention, I have decided to make them as gifts for my friends.

Supplies:
-Various plushy toy toss offs such as beanie babies - can be found at local thrift stores, your kids toy box a co-workers cubical and sometimes even in free boxes
-Needle & thread
-Scissors
-Hot glue
-Goggely eyes
-Old pants or sweaters
- Sewing Machine

Step 1 - Start identifying which body types will accommodate your gadget. Then start deconstructing. Make little piles of plushy parts for your mad science self.

Step 2: Mad Science

Step 2 – Start playing around with mixing the plushy parts on the body shell you chose. Pin in place.

Step 4 – Cut off the end of a pant leg or shirt that is as wide as your plushy and a little deeper. Turn inside out and sewn three sides together, leaving the top open.

Step 5: Oh the Birth

Made one of these with my seven year old the other day. We don't have a sewing machine and did it all by hand. We put a head on it and used a bit of elastic and a button to close the beast. We also added a ribbon as a strap. She loves it.

Those are awesome! (Not exactly space-saving, but then that's clearly not the point.) You should add this to the Homemade Gifts contest- these guys would make great holiday presents.
