I love how fantastic sewing is for someone like me who has hobby ADD — bored of making quilts? Sew clothes! Bored of making clothes? Sew bags! Tired of making bags? Sew toys! And so I made some monsters for my kiddies.

I let them choose which one they wanted (Glowbug got the leftover one), and Cosmo picked the pink monster that’s based on Igor Mousenstein.

Sunshine chose the one from Make a Monster. I was so surprised that he actually really likes it — it’s been a couple of weeks, and he’s still carrying it around! He calls it his dolly. 😀

Glowbug got the last one, which I made just so Sunshine would still be able to make a choice after Cosmo. It’s based on a monster I saw on Pinterest, but the link goes somewhere weird… anyway, I think it’s really funny! It’s the perfect shape to put a crinkly thing inside for babies, although that didn’t occur to me when I made this one.

They’ve got hearts on their butts because it’s a monster requirement, donchaknow. Picture overload!

  1. Ha, love them! I also love that the boy got the pink one and the girl the blue one, way to go on the equal opportunities colour front 😀 BTW, is Cosmo wearing odd flip flops? Extra cool points 😉

  2. A-doooor- able! The little butt hearts – sweet! It reminds me of my Raggedy Ann that had a heart where the heart should be.

  3. Those are so awesome! And I love the leftover one the best 🙂

    I know what you mean about needing a break from quilting. I seem to have taken one mid quilt-along. As in, quilt-along is over but my quilt still needs 2 more borders.

  4. I adore the mustache monster, it’s such a cutie and I love the hearts on their backs.
