Post 20: Featured Artist!

Several months ago I was wasting time, as I usually do, and I came across a website that made plush toys. These weren't just ANY plush toys, but they were custom toys designed from children's drawings. For somewhere around $200.00 you could send your child's drawing in and have a custom plush made from it....Sooo I thought this was a GENIUS idea, and since I have many lovely kiddos in my life I have decided to give it a try.

The "artist" I have chosen for my first project is my totally awesome nephew Aidan!
Aidan loves scary clowns, snowmen, monsters, dressing up and being scary. He is quite the character! And lately he has apparently been on a Frankenstein kick!


Frank with Freckles and Stitches:

And last but not least my personal favorite (and the one I think I will use for this project)
Weird guy with chin hair and a crazy hat!:

I was so excited I had to share. I think any of you who sew and have little artists in your life should give it a shot, I am sure it will be loved no matter how it turns out :).

(Thanks to my sister-in-law Katie for the pics!)
