My Weekend of Custom Orders

I had a really busy weekend in my shop! I was working on 3 custom orders!
I love getting custom requests because it forces me to get creative and think outside the box a little bit.

Custom order #1 - ZadySpider
This one is for a special little guy with Down's syndrome. His parents wanted to give him something to wear around his neck so that he always has something acceptable to chew on. It was a little tricky to get it the right size, but I think it turned out great!

Custom order #2 - Chic Pink and Brown Butterfly
This one was a request for the ever popular color combo of pink and brown. I had to search a little bit to find this fun fabric, but I think it turned out really great!

Custom order #3 - ZadyMonster
This one was really fun! The buyer's 3-year old son picked out the "Retro Robots" Zadyball in my shop, but started calling it a "ZadyMonster". She sent me a note and asked if It would be possible to put a monster face on the Zadyball. I thought it sounded like a fun idea, so I went for it! I think that this could really take off!

I just LOVE getting creative ideas for those that will actually be using my creations!
