Here's the how-to:
Take two pieces of felt the same size. Lay them on top of each other.
Drawing with a permanent marker, decide the shape and layout of your monster. Let the kids help you decide on the shape: hair, spikes, round or square head, lots of arms, tiny arms, feet or pogo foot, skinny or large, etc.
Cut out your creature. I cut about 1/4" inch outside the line to allow for a seam.
You should have two cutouts of the same creature on top of each other.
I pulled out my button collection and let the kids choose their button eyes. I then hand sewed them on.
I cut out a wiggly round "growling" mouth and a couple teeth. Then I sewed with the shortest stitch length possible around each piece to hold them onto the monster's face.
They should look something like this. I put the matching shapes right side together and sewed all around the monster leaving an opening about 5 inches. I had the kids help stuff them with Cluster Stuff, a small ball, soft fill - much better than batting for stuffed animals. I hand sewed the opening.
If you have some monsters to show off. Comment me and I'll include them in this list!
