My son turned 4 on Sunday - about a week ago I asked him what he would like for his birthday - he told me funny monsters - so that is what I made him - he loves them already - although he hasn't named them yet - he will though - once he figures out their personalities (he has a stuffed dog he named Blackie - who is a Blackhound - not a greyhound - and Blackie is a very shy dog.....

Anyhoooooo.
Here are my monsters - and the happy owner of them - simple monsters whipped up while he was sleeping...

Those are so cool! I love the antennae - are they just held up by the stuffing? Did you use a pattern or make them up yourself?

I didn't use a pattern - just winged it.  The one eye guy I had started to write down what I was doing - but then got disinterested in holding onto the pattern - it was a simple enough design if I had to recreate it.
The antenna only have stuffing in the top part - they were actually made for a different stuffed creature I had started - I kind of frankencreated him - the triangle on his chest was going to be a snaggle tooth per hubbys request but I didn't like the way it looked so it became chest adornment - the black dot under the triangle was going to be an eye but didn't like it so it became another adornment - and he even has a tail in the back - that was going to be a mouth for the blue/green one eyed guy - but it got reallocated to the brick red dude.

Frankenmonster.
He already wants more monsters - but now I have to focus on work projects!

Wow, the blue-green one really caught my eye ( Grin)!  That's great for wingin' it-I think a monster tutorial would be really popular on craftster.  Great job!
