Another kid drawing turned stuffy. This one was scribbled by my friend's little dude, he's turning 2 today so it's his present from us. Obviously he had help with the face, he's big bro and sis lent a hand.
I think it kinda looks like florida  Cheesy.


I love doing these, there are so many ways to translate your kid's creativity into plush form. The following have all been posted on craftster in the past but I thought I'd compile them here in chronilogical order as each one is a slightly different technique and you can see the design progression too.

Here is a drawing as dictated to me by my little man. He told me what this monster should look like as I was drawing it and then we sewed it trying to stay as true to life as possible.


Kid drawing translated into fabric. This was a bday gift to a friend of his.


Stuffy designed by the young man. I love that the stuffy has a little stuffy of his own!

I love Mr. Orangey Florida man. Adorably happy.

This really is such a cool idea. I think I'm going to have my little cousins help me design a couple of plushies. It's just a great way to interpret their creativity.

Great ideas. I turned my son's drawings to a T-shirt decoration for my housband, but I really love your suggestion of converting drawings in three dimensions!
