I have a birthday party to go to on Saturday. It's for a little girl who is turning five. I wanted to make her something crafty and something inexpensive. She's five. I'm not into spending lots of money on toys that kids destroy. Instead I made her little monster stuffies. These were my practice monsters. Aren't they cute?!?!?!??! Once I made these I just couldn't stop. I made eight of these today. I have a sickness, stop me. I made two different types of monster.
I would like to say that it was my kids who made me pose them in the garden. But no, that was all me.
This is the real set for the birthday girl. She's really into pink. I decided that I would add snaps to the "mom" and "baby" monsters so they would be a set and stick together. The back of the "mom" has the male end of the snaps and the back of the "babies" had the female end. It amuses me to no end that the ones on the "mom" look like nipples. Trust me, it's funny. I'll take a picture tomorrow.
What I love about these is that my kids love them so I know she will love them too. I like toys that promote that imagination side of play. Also, it used up a bunch of denim scraps. I think once they get washed the edges will fray and they will look even cuter.
So, what am I going to do with the other ones I made today? I was tossing around the idea of throwing them on Etsy. I really like making them. They make me chuckle. The embroidery machine does all the work. I just stuff them and stitch the side seams when they are finished. I may see if there are any takers . . .
