Ok, I'm finished with this round. 40 freaky monsters are set up on display at our local library and hopefully will find wonderful new homes for themselves. They certainly can't stay at our house, I'd have to rent a bigger place for all of them LOL!

First batch here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421751.msg5003438#msg5003438
Second batch here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421907.0#axzz2Oa4eZ24S

















I saw these bizarre mirror faced bunnies one time and when I came across an old fisher price toy with a circle mirror sewn into it, it cried out to be remade into and awesomely freaky monster and here it is! I get a bit kick out of handing it to people saying "and this is the one with the scariest face!" LOL  Cheesy


And finally a rock star sock monkey that my cousin wanted for her littlest one's first bday, I felt so honoured to have one of my creations chosen for that  Smiley.

These are really cool!  You've done a wonderful job on all of them.  Do you give them away at the library?

I love these, especially the simplest shapes, like the guys with just legs, or the ones who look like an "H"  Smiley

Hahaha! LOL!!

But I would be very tempted too!
I think the grey one, with the pink striped body is my favourite (the fourth sweater cutie)!!

Again, great work! Smiley

Thanks guys! I'm hoping they'll sell there, if not I'll be looking for a craft show to take them too. We're going to have to move in a few months so I've been destashing crafting supplies (and everything else) and trying to make a little money in the meantime.

Is there a stand-out version? I'd like to have one or two patterns I use again and again, making 50 one of a kind creatures at once is fun but so time consuming Tongue. It's hard for me to pick a fave though, I love them all!
