I made a monster hoodie! It was a very simple project, but I get a lot of compliments on it.
For once, I have only action shots! Enjoy the silly Disneyland photos =D.
Here's a mini-tute, since it was so easy. (no pictures in process though, sorry)
1. Draft a horn pattern, basically a cone, curved if you'd like. Cut out 4 of these, sew and stuff to make 2 horns.
2. Put your hoodie on and have a marker on hand. Play around with horn placement (preferably while making funny faces in the mirror) and figure out what you'd like. Carefully mark where each horn goes with a marker (or chalk if you think you might mess up).
3. Pin the horns on and try on again to make sure you like the placement. Sew around the edge of the horns using either whipstitch or blanket stitch.
4. Cut 2 circles from white fabric and 2 smaller circles from some colored fabric. Sew the white circles onto the hood and then sew the colored circles on top of the white circles. Then sew buttons on top of the colored circles for pupils. You can play around with the position of the colored circles to make your monster cross-eyed, sad, surprised, etc.
5. Cut out a rectangle of white fabric. It should be twice as wide as you want your monster's teeth. Fold the fabric in half and draw a zig-zag line on the fabric (you can add fangs or make the zig-zags irregular if you want). Sew along this zig-zag line (I used backstitch) and then cut close to your stitches. Sew the teeth onto the edge of the hood so that your zig-zag line doesn't show.
6. Optional: add a bow! Cut out a square of colored fabric. Fold it in half and sew around the edge, leaving a space in the middle of the long edge for stuffing. Lightly stuff it and sew up the space. Wrap a band around the middle (hiding your sewn-closed space) so that the rectangle is cinched into a bow.
All in all, it was a really easy project. I did all of it hand-sewing, but it could have been done on a machine to make it even faster.
