last week i squeezed in a little project that i’ve wanted to try for a while now. i made a stuffed toy from one of the bee’s drawings.
the page wouldn’t fit entirely on my scanner, so the hat and arm got cut off a bit, but you get the idea. the bee is really into drawing “persons”, and they’ve been evolving in style pretty quickly. they don’t actually look like this any longer – they’re very tall now, thinner, and for some reason they all lean over to the right. the drawing above was done in yellow, but it was very hard to see so i changed it to red. i carried that happy yellow color over into the person i made for her.
i love that her (it’s very important that everything is female these days) smile stretches all the way across her head. the button is a belly button, obviously, and the fabric on her belly is her shirt – because a shirt covers your belly button.
the bee loves person!
how absolutely adorable. and such a great idea for her to have something made from her own drawing.
thank you so much!
