Custom owl plushie from a kid’s drawing.

This owl softie was a special Christmas request from a little girl. She asked Santa Claus to turn her sweet owl drawing into a fluffy owl softie!!!

Santa contact me and ask me if I could help him! After all I am one of his elves!!!!;)

I couldn’t say no! I gave my best and this is the result🙂🙂 -> ->

Every drawing is unique. It is very important for me to  pay attention in every detail.

This softie is made with high quality yellow fur and fleece fabric. Its eyes and mouth are a bit stuffed to get this 3D effect. Every part is double machine stitched and some parts are also hand sewed. Size approximately 15″inches.

Christmas advent calendar 2015

I love Christmas advent calendars!!!!

They make me feel like a child again. It is such a lovely feeling to wait each day to put a new ornament every day and finally decorate the whole tree at December 24th.

It is kind of magic!!!

As it seems every year I make a new fabric calendar🙂 This was made at 2013. I must also post last year’s too😉

My intention was not to make a mainstream advent. It will have 24 pockets and a Christmas tree with ornaments but mine will have something to stand out😉

This is my new Christmas advent calendar!!!

Fabric advent calendar

 

There are 24 hand printed pockets around the Christmas tree. The border is a bit stuffed and so as the tree. which gives them a 3D texture.

I have sewed 24 buttons on the tree where you can hang the ornaments. But take a better look at the buttons. There are two red/white thread lines on the tree!!

Advent calendar detail

This calendar has 24 ornaments. The 14 are letters that form the phrase “MERRY CHRISTMAS” and the rest are 10 woolen circles. Each letter is hand painted by me.

When you start placing the ornaments, if you put on the upper thread line the “M” letter and then  continue as likewise then by the end of December you will get the whole phrase right in front of your eyes. The kids love it ! Especially those who start learning now the alphabet.

And finally you will get it all decorated!!!

Yes I know it is not Christmas yet but this calendar is up for grabs at my Etsy shop!

Ready to start count town😉

Cipollino cartoon softie

Do you know Cipollino? I had no idea about this cartoon. It goes down to the 60′ but it still has its fans!!!

It is a fictional character by Gianni Rodari’s eponymous Tale of Cipollino, from an old Italian cartoon, re-made into a Soviet propaganda film. Cipollino, or Little Onion, fights the unjust treatment of his fellow vegetable townsfolk by the fruit royalty (Prince Lemon and the overly proud Lord Tomato) in the garden kingdom.

This onion boy is really cute. Don’t you think? I had to try my best to make my softie as cute as the cartoon 😉

I used my favorite doll cloth (fleece) and  this is the result🙂

On my working table, ready to get dressed.

There is also a trick with his hair!!!! They are pull- able!!!

Yes, that is correct!!! You can pull his hair and they grow! As the cartoon character!!!!!

Watch closely…………..

Softies inspired from children’s drawings

During these years I have received several children’s drawings that I turned them into softies.  Every drawing was a nice surprise for me because children have the ability to draw something ordinary (ex. rabbit, owl) in the most creative way. Their drawings are so special because they do not have our mind illustrating rules!!! It is the creative expression that lets children tap into the magic of their own imagination and just enjoy the process.

Here is an example of what I am talking about.

I was assigned to make from two drawings, two softies which where intended to be given as birthday gifts.  Check them out U+21DD.gif

Here is a cat and a worm drawing!

and here are my handmade softies inspired by these special drawings.

First, the cat softie.

Second, the worm softie.

Worm body details

 

These softies are made with high quality fleece and they are stuffed with fiber fill. All their parts (inside and out) are double sewed. Quality is very important to me and I pay attention in every detail.

This is a excellent birthday gift idea! Don’t you think? You will not find a similar softie to any mass production store and remember that it will be made from your kid’s design.

But, I guess the hard part is to choose which drawing to send me😉 And then I will take from there…

More to browse here 😉
