Dolly/Stuffed Animal stuffing

I thinking of sacrificing some old T-shirts int making some dollies and/or stuffed animals. But I don't wanna go out and buy stuffing, I want to do as much with re-used/recycled (aka free and just laying around the house) materials.

First I thought about using shredded paper from our document shredder...but decided against that in case Dolly/Teddy have to go in the wash.

Then I thought about using dryer lint...

or old plastic grocery bags...

Thoughts? Suggestions?

  • Old T-shirts, dish rags and cloths work well. Dryer lint is BAD as it's VERY flammable. plastic grocery bags are ok I suppose.
