Well, craftster has a Jordy Bag, so felt monsters can be NinaMonsters, right?

This is my first post after, um, a year and a half of reading.

I made a NinaMonster for my friend Lisa for her birthday. Mine got kind of fancy, since I have piles of beads and notions. I made it with extra-long arms with the idea that it would have them curled into hands, but they ended up making it poseable. The wings were made by top-stitching two pices of felt held together, then pinking the lower layer, and trimming the upper close to the stitching. I sewed them on by carefully picking up a bit of felt on the body, then making a stitch on the topstitching on the wing.

So, NinaMonster NuclearPink striking poses:

And detail of the face. The lines are embroidered on with floss in a straight stitch. The eyes are felt with red glass beads, the nose is a large red glass bead.

Thanks, orange!

I'll post the next two here when they're done. I'm making my daughter one, and another for myself.

I love it.  I especially love that the wings look like they are on the front.  Very cool. :-)

They are on the front.  Grin
They didn't look right anywhere else. I admit, though, that I just now thought of the butt.

That's great.  I love the crossed arm pose.  And I totally agree that these should be called NinaMonsters after her super tutorial.

Ummm okay I quite didn't understood how you joined the head and body. Could it be possible if you post a tutorial explaining that?

By the way, your NinaMonster looks perfect! Almost store-bought!
