Assorted yarns and thread. A crochet hook, a bit of stuffing and piece of ribbon... and for Emmas Monster the body is knitted, thus needles too.
What was your inspiration?
A friend posted a pick of a huge monster with pockets of little monsters she'd made and I couldn't resist the idea of making monsters for my ' little monsters' (grand daughters). And my mind took off on a monsterish journey of its own...
What are you most proud of?
That considering they were only a quick evening project using what i had on hand they still came out cute.... Both girls love them and were delighted when they both realized the other had gotten one too. (they were mailed to them)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Let your imagination do the work.... And be careful, monsters are very addictive, I already have several in various states of creation.... and a hundred more ideas...
I make them 'free hand' and would encourage anyone who tried one, it can't go wrong, even arms and eyes are different shapes... nothing has to match. Monster making tends to lend itself to free expression, after all, a monster looks like you imagine it to, right?
