Kid Designed, Momma Made

Hmmmm…. That almost sounds like a good name for a new business venture… hmmmm….

I’m so excited about this project! I love the little flower fairy doll I just finished up for a little girl from my son’s preschool. Honestly, it was kinda hard to give away!!

Our preschool auction came up not longer after I (I mean Santa and the Easter Bunny) made my son’s Bear and His Best Friend Pear duo. Remember, this was a project I did based on an idea he had. I had a great time putting his ideas together in stuffie dolls. The project turned out so cool that I donated a stuffie project as an auction item for the Preschool auction. It sold and this was the image I got to go on. Drawn/designed by a Pre-K’er.

And this is what came from the drawing. Made by a Momma!

It was pretty fun! I’m usually pretty good at sewing and getting everything right the first time. But I had a few struggles with getting some pieces just right. I made the feet a couple of times before I got them right. and one of them is still a little off, but I feel like it’s pretty close.

I did take one creative liberty…. The original design didn’t have hair on the front of the fairy’s face. I made the face without the hair and it just seemed to be missing something with the crown there and hair in the back… I hope that’s ok…

So what do you think? Add Design Your Stuffies to my Etsy shop??? hmmmm….

    How cute! I can imagine it was difficult to give it away… And lovely pictures too!

  2. Oh my gosh. What a precious gift to turn a little girl’s picture into reality. You are seriously talented.

  3. That is one of the most adorable things I’ve seen! What a great idea – and you really pulled it off. I can just imagine the face of the little girl when she sees it. How cool!

  4. I love the idea of design your own stuffies! And the fairy turned out great–it’s just like the picture come to life. I’m visiting from the Seattle Blog FB page and am so glad I stopped by!

  5. Wow!! What a great doll – so impressive that you took a drawing and made it into a stuffie!

  6. Very neat! I love it. You could make a business out of creating kids drawings. VERY nicely photographed as well. Do you have photo tips published somewhere? Thanks for taking the time to post this.

  7. I just found you through Jess and keep reading your posts. I love the bear and pear story. You are making me laugh! Thanks!!!


  1. […] Another doll. Drawn by a kiddo made by me! […]

  2. […] you see the last Kid Designed, Momma Made project I did? That one was for my son’s auction… This one is a baby […]

  3. […] One thing I love to make are stuffies (what we call stuffed animals) and dolls from kids drawings! And every year I also offer this as a thing at the kiddo’s school auctions. Rarely, do the people who buy them actually cash them in to get made. So I was really excited when the parent who got it last year, actually took me up on the offer! You can see some of the Kid designed, momma made creatures here and here. […]
