Meet Mollie the Scottie - Volunteer of the Week
When you heart up cycling as much as I do, you can NEVER seem to get your hands on enough stuffing.
Fortunately, a reliable source is close at hand. Meet Mollie the Scottie!
Mollie demolishes at least one of her toys every week and generates a generous helping of stuffing for me each time she finishes a play session.
This week, she donated enough stuffing for me to make a rag doll and two knitted rabbits.
Thanks Mollie – Keep up the good work!
It is always worth saving the stuffing from things you no longer want to make house room for.
Those old cushions can happily be re-cycled into something that someone will love again. I am always on the scrounge for stuffing and happy to receive your donations.
If you can knit - you can do your bit!
Knitted toys are a great way to up-cycle stuffing. Take a look at my knitting projects for inspiration. The stuffing for this cheerful chappie was recycled from a discarded cushion.
If knitting isn’t really your thing, take a look at my other projects – there are plenty of other ways of up-cycling stuffing!
