    Thank you so very much for your comment sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I was recently thinking about getting some new photos on as Im planning on making a few changes to it but have been a bit busy. Its not to complicated basic pleated skirt V neck bodice, the trickiest part was getting the strap part right and the lining :)

    Thank you for your comment on my little monsters. I added a comment to my creation page, but I don’t think Burda lets you know about it so here it is. You will have to let me know if you make any of these. I want to see some pics.

    I used the basic patterns at:

    I didn’t really follow the pattern faces. I created my own to make each monster have its own personality. I used scrap fabric/felt for eyes & mouths. Many of the noses and eyes I just used a zig zag stitch to hide whether I stitched evenly or not when going in a circle. I also used embroidery thread for some eye spots and mouth lines. The bodies are made out of fleece blankets from the Goodwill.

    The monsters are approximately between 7.5-10 inches high and 6-10 inches wide depending on the pattern. I altered the patterns with different ear shapes, etc.

    All you have to do is: 1. Cut out the two body pieces 2. Decorate one of them with a face, 3. Sew body pieces together with right sides facing ~1/4 inch seam allowance (leave a small gap approx 3 inches or so to stuff the dolls with, I left mine under one of the arms), 4. Pull the body through the gap left in previous step, stuff and hand sew gap together

    Thanks for the comment! I do, in fact, carry the messenger around school. I also made two more for other friends who liked the reversable idea as well. Thanks again, keep creating!
