I'm re-running an idea I shared over a year ago, but it's such a good one it warrants dusting off out of the archives.
Last Christmas, my sister-in-law L (who, by the way, took up all the thin, beautiful, artistic genes in our family, but I love her anyway) made the most incredible gifts for my children. A month before Christmas, she asked them to draw and color a picture of a character--any character. Adam drew Mario from Nintendo, Stephen drew SpongeBob, and Joseph made up something all his own. We mailed them to her, and she used their drawings to create patterns...and then she re-created their little creatures in pillow form. My kids went nuts for them and they still love them. Here's a picture:
I wish I could show you Joseph's original drawing (and I suppose I could, if I wanted to spend two hours digging through last year's keepsake box, which I do not.) If you could see it, you would be amazed at how faithful L's sewn rendition was to Joseph's original.
