Hi gang!  So, I am in the Ongoing Wish Swap Round 57.  One of my partners requested a monster plushie.  I made 2 of them, but the one I am posting here really reminded me of a Muppet once I got him finished (I am calling him Sparky).  I guess you can tell when someone grew up watching the Muppet Show.   Grin

Sparky is made of a wool/acrylic blend yarn (Comfort by Berroco).  I added some felt and suncatcher eyes.  I made the pattern up as I went, and he's actually really simple.  The body is just a crocheted rectangle folded in half, and the arms and legs are made in the amigurumi style.

Thanks for looking!  Comments and criticism always welcome!!  Cheesy

He's so cute, his eyes look a little sad. I want to just hug him to death!!

I agree that he looks a little sad-but it's just so cute!
