Stocking stuffer monsters, look similar to “Ugly Dolls”. My friend and I made them for the domestic abuse woman’s house.

Material Notes

Blankets from the Goodwill (cut up for the bodies), fabric scaps for eyes/mouths, embroidery thread for mouths

    I used the basic patterns at:http://www.theuglydollshop.com/Some-Uglydoll-patterns

    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

    They really are adorable, can you tell us how big they are? 1 inch, 5 inches, etc. I work with survivors of domestic violence and it would be a great thing to do for the children.
