Personalised soft toy created from birthday boy’s drawing

One very happy face, was followed today by a very happy birthday boy. I love working on commissions, as you never know what you are going to be presented with. It’s all one big surprise for me and for the child at the end of the process.

The character that I brought to life this time had a big grin literally from ear to ear…



My children loved his eyes. Whilst sewing, I wasn’t sure what way I was going to sew the eyes, whether to work it freestyle machine or applique. But it reminded me of the children’s story from Hans Christian Andersen called The Tinder box.

I received a picture this morning of the birthday boy with his creation. His mum said he had a very happy face and was grinning from ear to ear, just like his character.
