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

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!

sweetbriardreams said...

Brilliant! This makes the drawing extra special and I am sure Michal is thrilled with this. Beautiful idea xx

That is such a clever idea. I've seen embroideries based on children's drawings but never a 3D object; I love it. xx

Great to use a drawing from your niece!! I did one time with a drawing of my daughter, made a clay-pendant from it.

A clay-pendant is an interesting idea. I'm trying to think of a way to turn the flower into a stamp.
