Day Before March!

Pin It Now!

I am so excited that February is finally over.
Not because it was a bad month, but because the entire month of March I will be number 3 of 50 in the Other Talented Artists tab of Child's Own Studio. She gets 1K hits or so a day, and I'm going to be front and center! Wheeee!

Pray for me, ya'll!

So here's Gavin's Prince Piggy.
He's a pretty suave dude, if you ask me.
I only had to re-do his face and head 4 times (haha)

Here, Kitty Kitty :)

Pin It Now!
I just love working with fur.
It's been so long since I made anything with long enough-pile fur...maybe since high school!
This adorable grey kitty was drawn by Laura, age 6.
And here is her softie...and she is SO soft \/

Her whiskers turned out so cute!!

This little one was a very unique challenge, but I love the way she turned out. Look at that happy face!

Final of Three!

Pin It Now!
What an amazing, productive weekend!
 I've finished the last of the three boy's photos, and can't wait to see their reactions.
This is Blake' Dragon. Blake is 4, and definatly has the heart of a dragon.
I mean how great are a double set of wings?
And here's his softie to fly around the house with him. Maybe out of trees too :)

Artistic Liberty For the Win!

Pin It Now!
Whee! I just love when I have a free weekend, and can just spend a whole day sewing.
When I was in grade school we were sometimes given a single squiggly line drawn on paper to "create" a picture from. This is how this little guy happened.
This is Cullen's drawing. He is 2, and I took a bit of artistic liberty here, but I think he turned out really cute.

I found the most perfect fleece and furry-type fabric, and this little guy emerged in a little over 2 hours.

First Kid-Inspired Softie Complete!

Pin It Now!
Ok, I may have just worked all day, but I could not resist coming home and sewing immediately. I really do love to create. So here he is, Seth's Bird., named 'Faintrick'. Seth is 8 years old.
Here is the photo he drew for me
Here is the finished bird. I am so excited about how he turned out!

Good Morning Softie People!

First ad Foremost, thanks for visiting my blog. I am VERY new to the blog scene, so things will look a little...novice for a while. I'm a quick learner, so it'll look "normal" in no time.

At any rate, I am very excited to begin making softies from your kiddo's artwork. Kids have amazing imaginations, and creating a lovable stuffed toy to compliment their work is an incredible experience. I will begin posting photos soon, (had to go buy a new digi-cam) of my past work, and my peices inspired by kiddos. I can't wait to begin. This feels like the start to an awesome, exciting adventure.

Stay Tuned!
