Instead I made a serious case, with secret cuteness. We are the bunny family, so I made embroidered a tiny bunny family. From a distance it looks like nothing more than a serious monogram.

This month's Whiplash competition is to creatively recycle "normal" household waste - but of course, what constitutes normal waste must change dramatically from home to home. Since Lara was born we've become accustomed to two kinds of now-normal waste - the adorable clothes she grows out of almost on a weekly basis and the seemingly non-disposable objects she unwittingly destroys.
I've recycled a few of these into this Robot Girl stuffie. The only non-reused material is the thread that holds her together - otherwise she is made of baby clothes, stuffed with cut up baby blankets; her (fully pressable) buttons are the insides of a now deceased calculator, and her (turnable) dial is a piece of a chewed up ruler.
