Step One - get your kid to draw a picture. Step Two - send the picture to Canada. Simple.
This is one of the best present ideas I've ever seen. This clever lady takes a drawing by little Miss/Mr Artist and converts it into a 3D soft toy likeness.
Mind, this only works so well because she is so damn good at it.
Tracey says she could do them: this from a woman who's sewed about six things her whole life. Suffice to say I was (mildly) doubtful until she explained she would do things a little differently - she'd make an odd looking, slightly bent toy and then get the kids to draw it. Now that'll work.
