monster

Hey, didn't this blog used to be about making stuff?



This Christmas (yes, I know, it's only six months ago, jeez) I decided to make a plush toy for my first ever nephew, Oscar. I wanted to make something colourful and fun but soft and safe.



The original sketch. I wanted something simple and huggable (and easy to sew).



I made a simple template with paper and used super-soft 'minky' fabrics and felt.



"I wonder if I can pull these off and choke on them?"



TOO CUTE.
