When I was a little girl, I was quite the artist. My mom was thoughtful enough to save all my masterpieces. Here are a couple of examples.
Don't ask what I was thinking, because I have no memory of drawing these. I was 3.
Somehow, my mom saw the cuteness in my bizarre creativity, and crafted these adorable dolls using inspiration from my drawings.
It's no secret that I loooooove things that are sentimental. Whether it's an item that was passed down from a grandparent, something that I have a fond memory of from childhood, or something that was handmade. And these little precious dolls has two of those things! My mom lovingly sewed them, combining my creativity with her very own!
And I think she did a pretty good job of capturing my very strange style with her mad sewing skills!
If you've visited our Etsy Shop recently, you may have noticed that my mom is custom making these for others now! All you have to do is send us a photo or scanned image of your child's artwork! And the picture doesn't have to be of a human being... it can be a monster, or a monkey, or a dinosaur, ANYTHING! This is such a perfect and meaningful gift for your little artist... even if that 'little artist' is grown up now! They're soft, snugly and durable... perfect for loving OR displaying!
Here's an example from my younger brother Tim's childhood drawing!
