Introduction: Stuffed Animal From a Kid's Drawing
I love my daughter's drawings, they say so much about her personality (like psychological tests) I just love to see how she perceives the world.
I keep her best drawings in a special binder, but she had the idea to turn one of her drawings in a stuffed animal. I think it's brilliant, this is the perfect way to keep her best drawings more visible and to make them come to life!
We won´t use needles, so that the kids can make it by themselves. So let's get started!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Step 2: Cut
Start by cutting the drawing
Fold the fabric in half and place the drawing on top.
Draw the outline leaving an edge of 1cm (see picture)
Cut the fabric following the line. Make sure you are cutting two pieces of fabric at once.
Step 3: Paint
Draw the face in the fabric with the pen.
Then take a little bit of fabric paint with the brush and trace the face.
Let the paint dry completely and then put both parts together with the good sides facing each other.
Step 4: Glue
Wash the brush and now use it to put fabric glue to the edge, work 5cms at a time.
Then press with your fingers both sides to make them stick.
Go through all the perimeter. But be sure to leave at least 5cms opened.
Step 5: Stuff It
Turn the plush inside out and through the opening fill it with stuffing.
Finally close the slit with fabic glue. Have fun!
