Loving the Monsters

Okay, I am on a new kick...stuffies. I have made some before, mostly felt ones. But now that I am in a stuffie swap on Craftster, I am making more. More than I needed to. And I have sketches for even more...almost an army.

This guy here was so fun to make. And he was kind of freehand based off one of my sketches. He looks nothing like the sketch. But I love him. Plans to make another are already in my mind, but, well, um, I forgot to copy the pattern. But I am still going to try.


After the blue guy was done, I wanted to make my 3 Eyed guy. My mind was envisioning a larger monster, but something said "keychain" to me. SO I made a teeny one. Loved him so much, I plan to make many more. Which shop they will go in? Not sure yet. They are an accessory, so the bag shop would work..b.ut the Too shop is a mish mash where monsters may feel more at home.

And that army...here are 3 WIPs ready to roll. And the sketch book has about 12 more. I plan to alternate X number of bags, then that number of monsters. I don't want to get too "stuck" on one.

Oh yeah...if you are wondering which one is for the stuffie swap - none of these. I won't post pics until my partner receives...no spoilers in case she peeks over here :)

These are so cute! And I think they'd look great in either shop :)

Oh how fun! I can't wait to see pics of the new ones when they're done too. I love the idea of keychain monsters- very cool.
