The GALLERY is HERE!

Whoever said "Cute doesn't need a reason" sure knew what she was talking about!  Case in point:  these CUTE little monsters!  The pattern is by Ellen Luckett Baker and it's FREE over at The Long Thread.  Ellen calls it a Monster Tooth Pillow, and it was created for children waiting for the Tooth Fairy.  But couldn't people who aren't losing teeth (I hope!) have a few of these monsters too?  Of course we could!  Because cute doesn't need a reason!  We call them "Hungry Monsters" because the mouth is a pocket.  Cute, no?

Wouldn't one of these be a great gift for your friends (both young and old) at Halloween, with some candy in the mouth?  And a group of them would look awesome any time of year, just sitting around on your sofa!  And who says they have to be only 6" tall?  Not me!  They could be any size, any fabric...and don't get me started on embellishments...!!   Just thinking of what you crafty swappers will do with this pattern makes my mind race.  I can't wait to see them all!  

The hungry monster is easy to make, so if you have a sewing machine, you CAN do it! If you want to see step-by step directions with pictures, please click on this link.  Come on, hurry up, fill out the questionnaire!!

I love these! So cute.  I've seen them with bigger zipper mouth pockets, for holding (eating, nom nom) pajamas on your bed.  Too bad I've yet to take out my sewing machine from the box and figure out how to use it...

You two may just have the corner on good ideas!  Wink

I had to sign up for his as soon as I saw the idea posted in the 'New Swap Ideas' thread...

I filled out my questionnaire for my two girls...I would like to give them the items as holiday gifts...

I want two partners, thought that partner 1 could craft for one girl, and partner 2 could craft for the other...hope that's okay.
