A Childhood Friend


30 July 2014 at 00:26:13 MDT

A little paper cut-out thing of the most beloved stuffed animal my sister and I have ever owned. uwu
He's a Ty Beanie Buddy named Zip! And surprisingly, still in pretty okay condition considering he must be thirteen years old by now. :b

Over the weekend, I found a really old piece of art of him that I did back in 2003, and suddenly I wanted to remake it ( except unfathomably better haha ). |D

Besides the ribbon, everything is just construction or computer paper, pencil crayons, and glue!
The ribbon itself was something I had from the dollar store, though I used a gold gel pen to add the gold stitching along the edges. c:

Hope you like! ♥

          It's hard not to when they come in so much variety. xD;
          I'm always surprised by how much we played with ours, yet the seams and things are still perfectly fine. ovo;
