I don’t actually play with my toys anymore. But after seeing a really moving documentary called Toy Story 3, I realized my toys might want me to engage with them. So in an effort to make sure my little figurines don’t feel neglected, I started turning them into necklaces. Now I can carry them with me all day and keep them close to my heart.

It’s funny that wanting to engage with toys led to screwing eye-hooks into them, but that’s irrelevant to the utility of this handy tutorial!
