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…………..

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 

Owl drawing                        2susan_black

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…

Legs

and last the whole figure 🙂

and BACK side…

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!!!

Luke O’ cyte comic hero turns into a soft doll

Along with Andy Biotic softie, Wesley Blauvelt also requested me to make Andy’s partner Luke O’ cyte.  Wesley calls him Andy’s tough as nail side kick. He helps Andy fighting  against the Bacterium and the Germs.

Another interesting  superhero design for me to turn into a doll!!!!

Luke’s figure is super fun.  I liked the idea of wearing a karate outfit and having a black ribbon around his head. A difficult task for me, as I had first of all to teach him how to karate 😉

Check below how comic superhero Luke O’ cyte turns into a real soft doll ➡ ➡
