A monster is for life, not just for Christmas

13 Nov

My house is full of monsters. It’s about time that some of them went off to their forever homes so I’m putting some of them up for adoption. They make excellent christmas gifts for that person who has everything, and are a great discussion piece on display on a shelf or windowsill.

I’m running a bit of an informal auction, with a suggested adoption fee for each monster (postage and packing will be a little extra), and am accepting bids for each little creature over on my facebook page. Remember that they are much bigger than they look in photos and each one is totally handmade with love and attention to detail. They are made as child-safe as possible but do contain small parts so are not intended as toys.

So if you fancy owning any of this motley crew head on over to my Mistress of Monsters page on facebook and let the bidding commence!

More Mini-Monsters

30 Oct

Now that the marital dust has settled, I can get back to focusing on some serious monstering. I’ve been really enjoying the mini-monsters, it’s a great way of using up scraps of interesting fabrics, and gives more instant gratification than the bigger projects. Initially I found working small to be really challenging but I feel like I’m mastering it now and I’m excited to start making some christmassy ones for the upcoming festive season.

Now that I am getting better at working on a small scale I’m planning to start adding more of my usual character to the mini-monsters, so expect to see them coming thick and fast over the coming weeks! Here’s what I came up with today.
