As we know and always say, moms make the best inventions!
For example, Wendy Tsao created “Child’s Own Studio” in 2007 after using her amazing crafting and sewing skills to recreate a person her son drew into a soft plush toy, called a softie. Soon she started bringing to life the drawings of kids in the family and for friends’ children. The passion and ingenuity eventually branched out into a full fledged business.
Since then, Tsao has created over 400 hand-crafted toys with prices that start at $40. That’s a virtual steal for a hand crafted one-of-a-kind toy!
Although she is totally booked for 2013, Tsao has allowed other artists and craft-makers who also do the same thing advertise their availability on her Softiemaker Showcase site.
How wonderfully surprised your little one would be to get one of these creations under her tree at Christmas or for a birthday!
Here are some creations from Tsao and inspired craftmakers:
