I have made many sock monsters and plush like playthings over the years. First pic Is my most recent progressing down to the first one I made  -  I am excited to see the progression over only 4 weeks (from last to first). Ive made just over a dozen so far in 4 weeks- Im really inspired by all I see here on the boards and look forward showing you the process for the next ones I make-- Lisa

I have never seen a plush made out of leather, how cool! I like the one with the fur between it's ears. The combination of that and leather looks awesome together. Well done.  Smiley

I like the one in the last picture the best. Did you draft up your own "pattern?" They remind me of viking monsters so I think my husband would love them!

Very cute!  The leather gives them some added attitude.  I really dig 'em!

The monster at the bottom of the post was the first one I did-- The pattern evolved into the top on ever the course of the dozen or so. After drafting the first pattern it was clear they were too skinny (see bottom monster)

 Im much happier with how they are rounded and fat instead of the skinny tall ones to start-- Im not a natural pattern maker by any means-- and fattened it out after each monster.

Fabric and plush is stretchier so you can make them fat and cute even if it wasn't perfect-

The pattern now looks very fat-- So id say if you care going to make a leather stuffy really over do the size of everything to account for lack of stretch.-- same thing for teeth-- You can see the furry headed one has daggers while the red toothed one has the nice fat teeth-- I have liked the sewing of the flame style teeth and colouring them with the leather dye--

I originally wanted to make leather bears--not a google friendly search term by any stretch of the imagination-- Im very happy to be making something that hadn't been done yet (leather plush? leather stuffies) Leather monsters are my little buddies that are my afterwork pleasure---
