Bring Childrens' Drawings To Life

Bring Childrens' Drawings To Life

You've probably come across companies that turn kids' drawings into stuffed toys or other products. They look fantastic and clearly they are professionals. Here are a few of my favorites including a few you can do yourself at home. 

1. Duvet Cover Tutorial from A Thousand Words. Jen spent a long time sketching out her kid's drawings onto his duvet cover. A lot of energy and time but worth the investment. 

2. DIY Stuffed Toy from a drawing on What I Made Today. Rachel shows you how to do this on our own in a two-part tutorial. It's involved but gratifying.

3. Pillow Tutorial using Fabric Crayons from Skip to my Lou. This one is a little easier.

4. Crayon Creatures is a website that turns your child's drawing into a sandstone sculpture. I'll bet you wouldn't otherwise find "hamster in a speedboat" (pictured above, #4) on store shelves.

5. Kidz Can Design provides a service that turns kids' art into jewelry. A nice gift for a mother! 

There are also many websites all over the world that provide a drawing-to-stuffed toy service. The principle seems fun and it makes for a nice memento.
