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.

size: 45cm x 22cm

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…

Two custom dolls made from children drawings

Hello again!!

This Christmas I had the opportunity to make two more softies from children drawings.

The first drawing was an “Owl” and the second one was a “Dancing Kid” ( I call it like that because of its shape) !!! lol

I liked very much these figures and the next thing was to examine all the drawing details..

— The Owl has a crown, a blue cape, something like a collar and last but not least a tether!!!
Can you see a black line at right bottom, near the leg? Yeap, that is a tether!!!
wink

— Now lets see what the “Dancing Kid” has! Check out his eyes, they look in different directions. I love its black freckles and his blouse with the funny logo face!!
His body is rather slim and flexible that’s why I call him “Dancing Kid”!!!!
lol

These are super amazing drawings but also very demanding in details!!!!

I’ve better start working ….arrow arrow arrow

Custom making soft toys from children drawings

Today I will share with you my story about how I come up with the idea making softies from children drawings. In fact this was not my idea….wink

One day my nephew came to me with a sketch of his own and asked me if I could bring it into life by making it a real soft toy! !! !!

I looked at his sketch and I saw this strange colorful Cyclops figure……..eek eek eek

Cyclops drawing

mmmmmmm! !!! !! I love creating monsters but THIS one was something else. I loved everything about it from its head to its toe.

This was a real challenge!!!! lol

The coolest thing about children drawings is that children draw so spontaneously and they create imaginative creatures that are beyond an adults’ mind. You can’t beat them!

So the answer was YESSS! ! ! ! !

And I start working on it……arrow arrow arrow

First here is the HEAD…

then the ARMS…

the THUNDERBOLT…

EYE and BELT…

the FEET…

From the moment he took it in his arms, it became his dear friend, his night doll. After all he was the unique and individual designer!!!
