I love seeing someone transform an idea from one medium to another. That act is a form of collaboration, and it can happen across space and time, too. Face-to-face interaction is not always necessary. Take this fulled sweater stuffed tiger, by Craftster user ptarmic wumpus (Boulder, CO). Inspired by an old coloring book from the 1960s, they were able to use some of their stash of fulled sweaters to bring these illustrations to huggable life. Below is a monkey inspired from the same book, looking oddly deflated pre-stuffing, and then full of character post-stuffing.
I also love when people turn their children’s drawings into stuffed animals. Collaboration is the best.
