I made these as a sample for ones I'm going to make with my class. (I work with special-needs boys) My daughter suggested that I make the mini-monster for one of the teachers. Just felt and wiggle-eyes and some fuzzy clearance fabric.
I used the KP Merino Style in storm, it took me 5 months of intermittent knitting and I ran out and had to order more. It ended up too large for me (I'm sure I just wasn't precise enough measuring my gauge) It fits my friend great, though!
