You will not believe how easy it is to make your own homemade plush animal. All you need is a pair of old socks, cotton, and some sewing material. Watch the video to find out how!
Plush toys have been around for ages, but the first commercially produced one appeared on the market in 1880. It was produced by the German company Steiff, who started experimenting with their upholstery equipment. They came up with one of the most durable toys for children of all times. Today, the fact that Steiff used to be an upholstery producer is actually forgotten.
For a couple of decades, only plush cat, dogs and pigs were produced. It wasn’t until 1902 that the teddy bear was invented.
So set aside some time and gift someone a cute little plush cat that you’ve produced yourself.
As a Valentine’s Day gift, or even without any particular occasion to celebrate – it’s sure to be much appreciated.
