I am so obsessed with MarthaStewart.com and the many many crafts that they have come up with not only for kids but for us moms too. Thumbing through all the crafts, I came across this wonderful craft that mom can get her kiddos involved with. I know my kids love drawing and they can do it for hours coming up with new animals and many other things that I have not quite figured out just what they are yet. Their imagination has endless possibilities so when I cam across this craft, I thought it would be perfect to see their drawings come to life. I keep all their drawing in a box and now with this craft, their drawings can sit right on their bed and can come to life each time they play with their creatures they came up with.
To bring a child's drawing to life, pin the cut-out drawing, facedown, to two pieces of fabric. Trace with a fabric pencil, leaving about 1/4 inch all around. Cut out. Sew on button eyes. Pin fabric again, right sides facing. Sew together, leaving an opening for batting. Stuff with batting, and then sew closed. Sew on other features, such as ears, limbs, and embellishments.
