Monsteralong
All crochet monster makers welcome!
Thank You Monster Makers!  I'm closing up.  Feel free to reopen & breathe new life into your own Monsteralong



*Meet Stitches, a little monster of mine*

Hello Monster Makers!  This crochetalong is dedicated to the creation of MONSTERS!  They can be amigurumis, hats, slippers, pillows, you name it! ...as long as it is a monster! 



If you would like to send your monster to those in need, there are 2 fab charities I know that need monster love.  They are:
---600 Monsters Strong strives to bring handmade monster-friends for children affected by gun violence and other traumatic situations through the generosity of crafters worldwide.
---Recovery Buddies (Facebook Page) which uses crochet monster-y "recovery buddies" to help people through a variety of addictions and mental illnesses including eating disorders, self-injury as well as others. (Note: They are in the process of setting up new mailing address.)

Do you know of somewhere else that needs monster love?  PM me, and I'll add it to the list


So what are you waiting on? 
Grab your hook and yarn, and let's make some monsters!

June's Featured Monster

The featured free monster pattern of June is...


Monster Maker pinkleo

Monstie by Sarah Hearn.

For June, we are adding legs to our monsters.  For the more advanced, you can have fun personalizing your monster by using different eyes, hair, mouths, stripes or making it grow or shrink.  I can't wait to see what you monster makers create!  All monsters made with June's pattern will be featured in the June Monster Lineup. Cool

Ayee!  What a cutie/creepy Hello Kitty monster!  I may have to put one together for my little girl!

I found a button for my little May Monster but promptly lost.  Maybe he'll actually be finished this month!

Here is my little guy with his pal my kitty Mikey!

Thanks Pinkleo!

Also, I have a question, do I have to crochet a specific monster pattern? Or any pattern I want.

Cool greenie!  I like how you did his eye.

I made a super cute monster for an angel package.  I can't wait for the receiver to get it then I can post him.  Argh international postal system.

It started innocently enough as just a carrot.  Then my imagination took over and my Craftenstein was born.

Wow! I am excited.  I look forward to seeing what June's project is!
Thanks for sharing your pictures everyone! THEY ROCK!
Since I am so new here, I can't post the picture it's self, so I apologize for the use of a link but this is my cutie.
She is being raffled off tomorrow as part of a package to help my son's school get a new playground. ^_^

I got a monster done for May!  I think I am going to use my little monsters as RAKs...summer is a great time to leave little gifts for people since so many more people are outside!

This little one was easy and fast...I have a few more that I want to do in this style before tackling the June monster!

Thank you. She did indeed! Nothing says love to a little girl, like a cute little Monster! So, I accomplished my goal. She found a kindred soul and a home. ^_^

So my latest monster finally made it to his destination for a swap angel package for the One Tiny Monster Swap.  He is now in the hands of wendiek's son in the Netherlands.  It was hard to send him off.

I used some fun fur for his mohawk and tail.
