DIY Fox tail to shake around
I had these fuzzy stuffed animals that I didn't really want - but I have this thing where I can't throw away stuffed animals & I don't know why.
So I chopped them up & sewed them into these cute tails that I've been wanting for some time. I made 3 in different sizes.

One big black tail with a little pink bow out of an old stuffed penguin

Two smaller tails, one tan & one white from a teddy bear.

    I find the backs of the toys are best to use since the pieces are larger & you can cut the shape of your tail as you see fit.

    Pin & sew wrong side out leaving an opening to put the stuffing in.

GryffindorGrl - Im a huge stuffy hoarder, these particular teddies were used because they came from an ex & needed to be transformed ;)
I couldn't bring myself to throw them - so I changed them Tongue
