I first came across the awesome business Child’s Own Studio some time ago, but for some reason never featured it on the blog! My lovely friend Thea reminded me about it and, before I forget again, I’m bringing it to you!
It’s a simple, but brilliant, idea that takes a child’s drawing and turns it into a stuffed toy! Since the first toy, crafter Wendy has made a few hundred and now has so many requests that she’s currently not taking on orders. But don’t worry, she’s kindly set up a Softiemaker Showcase on her website, featuring other crafters that can turn your child’s drawing into a toy.
Have a look at some examples of her work, I think it’s amazing how closely the toys resemble the drawings…
This would make an awesome, unique gift for a relative. Just get your child to draw them a picture and send it off to get it stuffed! Or sneakily send off a drawing for your child. Imagine how exciting it would be when their drawing, in 3D form, arrives in the post?! I love it!
