This is a cyclops monster stuffed animal I sewed with whatever fabric I had lying around the house. The teeth are held on by snaps (it was my first time using snaps that you hammer into place so of course I smashed a few of them and a few teeth hang on by only one functional snap). Each tooth has a secret message embroidered onto a fabric tag and attached to the root. So you rip off a tooth and unroll the secret message, and then you can roll the message back up and snap the tooth back on.

This was a gift for a friend who recently found out she had cancer, so when she's going through chemo and feeling crappy she can snuggle with it and periodically rip off a tooth and read a loving message from one of her friends. I had 8 different people write messages and I embroidered their handwriting onto each tag.

Here are some pics!

How thoughtful and hilariously strange. What a great gift!

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Oh, how in the world did you ever think this up? It's so horribly wonderful, wow. I love it. I just absolutely love it. The tags, the teeth, the cyclopsicleness of it all, those LIPS! You're friend will feel so loved and is sure to be utterly distracted by this bizzarro new companion as well. Well done.
