Frugal Tip: Batting for Toys!

Tonight, a few friends are coming over, and we’re sewing some cloth dolls. At lunch, I was making sure I had everything – patterns, scissors, yarn and floss for hair… batting.

I had ONE bag of batting, and it wasn’t full. What could I do?

The Scrap Exchange, one of my favorite local reuse stores, had no batting for sale… but they did have this enormous stuffed Christmas bear for $1.

Only a buck.

Sold.

Sorry, Christmas Bear, my son needs a rag doll.

(And, bonus, the poor empty bear will have all the bits that could hurt a dog snipped off and become a dog toy – how frugal is that?)
