May has been another busy but fun month for me. I celebrated a wonderful Mother’s Day with my family. I love being a mom its a tuff but fun job. Everything I do these days is inspired by my kids Anne and Jojo whom I adore.
I worked on some fun projects these weeks too. Here are more softies made from these adorable drawings by incredible kids. The first one is a colorful goldfish that made a cute mother’s day gift for a special mom. The second drawing is “Morgan Wolfie”, this one took me a bit longer than expected but I love the way it came out. Last is a little sweet pumpkin girl, that one was a special gift from Le Petit Creations for Melissa.
April has been a difficult month for me but I am getting through it. I just recovered from the flu and now I am catching up on all my projects. Here is one I had a hard time letting go of.
This little doll with button eyes was made from a drawing by Janice’s granddaughter and is called “Sweetie”. That is also Janice’s nick name for her little granddaughter. This is going to be a birthday surprise from her granny.
Susanne’s son sent her the link to my blog, he wanted to get a softie made for his godchild. His godchild could not decide on which drawing he wanted made into a soft toy. Susanne loved the idea and thought it would be a wonderful idea to send her son’s drawing instead. Susanne’s son is now a 21-year-old but he painted this saber tooth when he was 6 or 7 years old and it was a favorite. This is also one of my all time favorites. I am very proud of the way it came out. Tomorrow this cuddly saber tooth is off to Germany were it will be a special gift!
This week I received these pictures from the grandmother of these two adorable little ladies.
The first picture below is Yenny with her soft doll. I first created a soft doll from her drawing back in May 2012 http://lepetitcreations1.com/2012/05/04/little-girl-in-pink/
Yenny loved the doll and took it with her everywhere. On a family trip to the Coast it was accidentally lost. Her grandmother contacted me and asked if I could make her another one from the same drawing. My list was pretty full for December and I was afraid I would not finish it in time for Christmas. I also wasn’t sure I could match the fabrics exactly and capture everything the first one had. Luckily it all worked out in the end. I am so happy I could make this soft doll again and put a smile on this sweet little girl’s face. So here is a picture of the Yenny doll “little girl in pink” and she is still holding Yenny’s heart very tight.
The picture below is 2-year-old little Riley with her soft doll. Isn’t she such a cutie pie? Her softie doll was also a Christmas gift from her Granny.
This is a combination of a camel drawing and a play dough image made into a soft doll. It is a drawing done by an African child in the bush of West Africa. The soft doll is to be given as a gift to a missionary who travels often. I was asked to also include the arabic word for camel on the camel’s foot. I don’t know too much about the story behind the drawing but I imagine it is special and meaningful.
Here are a couple more drawings brought to life !
Drawing (Above) by little Lauren, a robot she calls Wooskily. This is a very special drawing and one of her parents favorites.
I am always so amazed to see the drawings these kids come up with. Such a beautiful imagination that they have, where anything is possible. This little creature was made from a drawing by Ryann. It’s some sort of cute octopus, unicorn fairy. Ryann is such good little artist, her drawing is one of the most creative drawings I have ever worked with. I like very much all the colors she used and the detail. This creature looks like something out of a children’s fairytale book. I love it!
I can’t believe it is already December my favorite month. I love the cozy weather, spending time with family and getting ready for Christmas. These are some special gifts I made from drawings I received . The last two are on the way to two special little kiddos living in the UK . Going to a be a Christmas surprise !
