I've been making monsters out of bunches of felted wool sweaters I collected from thrift stores and such, here's a thread with an obscene amount of them

And even more
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422022.0#axzz2OryPMPwZ
and these are the ones I had left after I ran out of stuffing. My friends work at the local library in town and are thinking these creatures would make a fun display so wow, and yay! That's exciting! Hope they don't scare any kids, lol!






My personal fave!

Another amazing...gaggle?...Pod?...Brood? of monsters clm.  You've done a great job of making them look all so different from each other.  I hope the library thing works out and makes you a ton of money Grin

I like the last 2 best.  The last one reminds me of the new Sherlock Holmes from England.  And the second to last reminds me of so many Pro Wrestlers Grin

Love them! I "collect" thrift store sweaters. I"ve found some cashmere, alpaca and angora .They don't fit me but they were soooo soft I just had to buy them. Maybe I'll turn them into something I can handle everyday and not feel guilty about hoarding them.
