It's bedtime

Have you ever heard about Inkscape? I discovered it through Laura from Titchy Threads. It's a vector graphics editor for digital illustrations and design. And the most important: it's free :)
You need to check this tutorial. Seriously... it's amazing. It shows you how to "cartoonify" your children's favourite toy! 
You have a detailed step by step tutorial in Laura's post to use this free editor and draw your digital picture. Once you have the digital design, you can print it and use it wherever you want!. Maybe a colouring book, some stickers... a t-shirt? You can buy some freezer paper and print your cartoon at home and iron it into your t-shirt.
My little girl is addicted to her dou-dou.  She is already 3 years old, but she still sleeps with it (ehem, them, cause she has 2 exactly the same). And now... we could infact say she has 3! Do you want to see??! Go and check the photos!!
PD: I used the Rowan tee for the tshirt.

Conocéis Inkscape? Yo lo descubrí a través de Laura de Titchy Threads. Es un editor de gráficos vectoriales que sirve para hacer ilustraciones y diseños digitales. Y lo mejor de todo: es gratuito :)
Tenéis que echar un vistazo a este post. Ya tiene unos años, así que igual no lo habéis visto. En serio... es alucinante. Te enseña como digitalizar el juguete preferido de tus hijos. 
En el post que os digo de Laura, hay un tutorial que os enseña como utilizar ese software y hacer el dibujo digitalizado paso a paso. Una vez que lo tengáis lo podéis usar para un millón de cosas. Hacerles un librito para colorear a los niños, unas pegatinas...una camiseta? Podéis comprar un papel de transferencia de camisetas y planchar la imagen del juguete sobre una camiseta.
Mi hija es adicta a "su mantita". Ya tiene 3 años, pero sigue durmiendo con ella (bueno, más bien "ellas", porque tiene 2 exactamente iguales). Y ahora, quizás podríamos decir que tiene 3! Queréis verlo? Mirad las fotitos! :-)
PD: El patrón que he usado para la camiseta es la "Rowan Tee" (por cierto, el patrón con las instrucciones se vende en castellano, por si os interesa)

  4. So sweet! What a sleeping beauty. I love watching my kids sleep, it's addictive! This is such a wonderful idea. My baby boy sleeps with a bunny, I have to try this.

  5. I need to check Inkscape now - this will be so much fun for customizing summer tees!
    She's adorable with her dolls (I've been there as well - washing them was so difficult, because around here having 2 didn't seem to do the trick. They could tell them apart!)

    1. Awww thank you so much! :-) Having 2 is neither the trick with mine! She wants to sleep with both "mantitas" + a doll + 3 books + some Pepa Pig cards.... Way too many toys in her bed at night! hahaha
