A Dutch textile designer KNIT a lifesize version of her tween son!
My son is reaching puberty. We used to cuddle all the time, but those days are becoming scarce. Now he rather hangs with friends, plays with his phone and listens to his ipod. Exactly according to nature’s plan. I am a good mother, so of course i accept this and i am happy he is a healthy kid.
We laugh a lot about the stretching gap between his needs and mine. Him needing more of his own space and my covert needs to keep on smotering him with maternal love. I am a textiles designer and he often helps me and has great creative ideas. So we started to fantasize how we could visualize this puberty gap. So i suggested to make a cuddly version of him!

At first I thought her son was INSIDE the knit costume, but I think it’s a stand-alone thing. Why? Because, here’s a photo of the knit son with her REAL son!
