After making my duct tape form I wasn’t really satisfied and I wanted to try other options before doing another one for me. So, I used my 4 year old. I wrapped her in clear packing tape, I think 3 layers, and then cut it up the back to get it off. I then peeled the t-shirt of of it and realized the tape was still sticky. I got a few sacks of scraps that would never be used and I “decorated” her form by sticking pieces of fabric to the tape. After that was done, I stuffed the form with the remaining scraps because I didn’t have anymore poly-fil. I think I like this version better.

for being so patient for me
