No, I would never call them monsters. Umm, let's move on quickly before I get in trouble. I'm talking about these monsters.
Their bodies are made from some pieces of Merino/Angora felt that I made almost 10 years ago when we got our first angora bunny, Mr. Brown The rest is felted wool bits from the huge pile of wool that has somehow grown up over the years. You know how it is, people know you sew, and they give you stuff.... I finally decided to play with it a little.
I stuck their little tails on with a stitched heart. Didn't realize when I took the photo that one bunny was "goosing" the other. Fresh! Anyway, they were so much fun to make, that I decided to cut out parts for a few more creatures while I was volunteering at the Leominster Art Center yesterday.
They each start with a 6.5 inch square, because that is the size ruler I had out. Everything else was cut freehand. I still need to cut out the arms and legs. They would probably be cuter with hand-stitching, but I really prefer using the machine. So, that's what will be happening here this weekend. What will you be up to?
