the monster mash!


monster 1
I found the cutest fabric that inspired these little monsters! I had to buy it and then a sweet friend at work offered to make a little quilt for my little grandbuddys shower. she made the quilt
and I made monsters to go with it!
monster 2
I had fun making them, though I was short on time, it was a last minute thing! IN fact.... I bought the fabric for the bear and the monster blanket on tuesday after work, came home stayed up til after midnight working on the bear, then got up at 4:30 to finish it!
monster 3
Then at work that day I was talking about the fabric and my friend said she thought she could make a little rag quilt and being in back to me by friday. but guess what??? she had it sitting on my desk the next morning, totally finished!!!!! Adorable! So I got started on the monsters and had them finished and turned into a mobile by sat morning! Now I want to get it back from Bethany, because I decided its not really finished, I want to add some little felted balls or something to it.

I love the little monsters though.. they are so cute!

I'm not sure these pictures do them justice!
And Here is the little chenille panda bear
that I made for my little grandbaby!

Hi Vivian, I've decided that next year there is going to be a get together of some sort, somewhere, for all our blogging friends to meet. I'm going to begin saving now! I need to learn new crafts! There are only so many felt things I can make! LOL! I just unboxed my pincushion you made for me, and my gosh, is it ever wonderful! You are the best. Love your Monster Mash. Have you seen the MM at Hallmark? I'll think of you now! E

Hi Vivie!
Your monsters are beyond adorable! Such a perfect little gift for a grandbaby! And the panda! OH MY GOODNESS it's So SWEET! I just bought one of Meri Wileys sculptures for my new granddaughter (arriving Wednesday of this week!) Something soft for her to snuggle would be adorable tho...if only I weren't so hideously SEWING CHALLENGED!

You are just a very multi talented chick, aren't you? Jealous! SO JEALOUS!

Hey Viv,

I started felting about 20 years ago, and stopped it at the same time. I punctured my fingers so many time I lost the feeling in two of them. Your creations are just so adorable. Thanks for sharing.

Hugs,
Meri
