Not only is this a MONSTERISLY (is that a word?lol) adorable creature but the tut was so well done!  My youngest daughter is just getting into sewing and she loves working with felt. She's ready for the sewing machine and ...DUH... I never thought of having her sew it before she cut it out!  SOOO much easy to do i think. Thanks , thanks THANKS! she's gonna have fun doing this.

Got me motivated to finish my niece's Easter present (I know...so late...but I had a bad case of tendonitis at the time). I made a bunny carrot, complete with leafy, bunny ears and a white tail. I don't have a sewing machine, but I used the basic idea you presented. Thanks!

Great tutorial Nina! And such a great monster- not scary at all!

I was wondering if there's any particular reason you don't put the face on first- say after you've drawn the template, allowing you more maneuvering, rather than restricting it to the opening once you've sewn? Not that I've tried the tutorial yet, so it might be evident whilst constructing. I only ask, as I too am lazy and was wondering what might be easiest....

Hi!
The first reason is... I'm not too good at the sewing machine (I'm getting much better with practice, but still...). When I started doing these creatures I figured out that if I was going to mess it up, it would probably happen while machine sewing. So if I do that first, then I don't have to worry about it anymore. And if I DO mess it up, I haven't lost too much work on it! Smiley

The second reason is.. I  always get something slightly wrong anyway (not following the line too well..), I think that if I did the face first it would very much risk to be off center.. and I'm still able to embroider wherever I want on the body even coming in through the opening.. with a little practice..

And the third reason is.. it's just more fun for me to add the face later on! Wink

So cute! They are going to be added to my ever-growing "List of things to make and then realise I have no room for *cough* did i just say that? I meant "List of things to make for other people" ".

i daresay that all makes sense, Nina, and I can definitely relate with the off center risk.  But you can't be too bad of a seamstress to do all those funky turns, and backstiching! Im pretty so-so at it myself but those are definitley tips of the initiated! Wink
