What are you most proud of? I'm proud that I created it without following someone else's idea/pattern. And that my daughter is inspired to learn to make these herself. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't feel a need to push through to the whole monster in the class. If making balls or eggs is how far you are ready for, that's ok too. Then add on pieces as you feel ready to add the attachment skills, etc to your repertoire. Also, I learned that maybe I should spend some time actually sketching out monster/toy ideas.
