Etsy shop Gooder Goods offers one-of-a-kind plush creatures made from ignored and unloved items of the past — such as blankets, gloves, and socks. Besides giving new life to unused goods, these creatures are adorable and full of personality. The cute gloveable octopus above features a body lovingly fashioned from gloves, and is given a fresh outlook via securely fastened metal snaps for eyes. Other cuddly toys include a wool blanket turned kitty, and a sweet sock bunny. Any of these creatures would make a lovable, soft friend for a child, while teaching them the creative art of upcycling!
