You'll Need:
2 car wash mitts (like these from Brilliant Store.com)
Hot glue gun (optional)

How to Make It:
1. Fold back the cuff on both car wash mitts and carefully cut them off by removing the stitches with scissors.
2. Flatten out the mitts and then fill with whatever stuffing or feathers you'd like.
3. Sew them together with a needle and thread or sewing machine. As an alternative to sewing you can use a hot glue gun to adhere the mitts together. You're all set, now just lay back and enjoy!
