hurrah!

for melancholy monster!




He's finished. And huge. I'm going to send the photos off now, wish me luck! (If you're just reading now, he's inspired by this project).
His tattoos turned out simple, but okay for my first go I think. I liked embroidering on felt and the heart with wings I found to be much more textured and interesting on the wrong side, so that's the way I sewed it. Yep. I was thinking of adding a nose, or eyebrows, but decided I liked his blank look. Kinda fits with the melancholiness. (I knitted that scarf so quick I got weird pains in my thumb. Has anyone else had random crafting injuries?)

Plus I used old pants for his bottom, so now he has a cute bum, look..


And hey! Don't forget these guys! If you haven't already entered, leave a comment on the original post and I'll be drawing two peeps out of a hat this weekend.


They can't wait to meet you!

He looks so sad and cuddly. I like his little blank face too. And yes, I am nursing a crochet injury from some extreme crocheting. I hope you are feeling better!
