Mad About the Boy


Billy is an awful boy
I don't like him at all;
first he pushed me off the swing
and then he grabbed my doll.

He also pulled my hair quite hard
and made to steal my snack;
if he tries to hug me,
I may not hug him back.



Featured: a felt flower
made from a drawing by my niece Michal

  1. Wow! So beautiful - I cannot believe how authentic it is!!!
    I love this kind of projects where drawings are transformed into real toys - just recently saw how Ikea did this with their customer's kids drawings. I was mind blown!
