Title: Vance, the Lumberjack Monster!
Post by: bittersweet_symphony on June 30, 2008 09:32:38 AM


This is Vance, my first monster! As soon as I found this fabric hidden away in my craft room, I knew I had to make a little rugged monster out of it! I purposefully sewed him with the seam on the outside to make him look more 'rough around the edges,' literally  ;)

Then I gave him felt eyes, a goofy grin, and soft, fluffy black hair out of some speciality yarn. And now for the fun part-- his personality!! He's so large that he's a bit of a doofus at times-- he's so kind that he tends to get all weepy and emotional, so of course, he's a vegetarian  :D. He lives in the deep, deep woods where he keeps a pair of rabbits as pets-- bad thing is, they won't stop having little bunny babies, but he doesn't have the heart to get rid of them! Also, he loves marshmallows and warm fires in his cabin!

Here we are...


What do you think??

I love that he's so big!  Very cuddly.  So cute.

And I agree.  You look like a model, or a country singer.
