Hungry, Hungry Monster
Whoever said "Cute doesn't need a reason" sure knew what she was talking about! Case in point: these CUTE little monsters! The pattern is by Ellen Luckett Baker and it's FREE over at The Long Thread (http://thelongthread.com/?s=monster+tooth+pillow).
Ellen calls it a Monster Tooth Pillow, and it was created for children waiting for the Tooth Fairy. But couldn't people who aren't losing teeth (I hope!) have a few of these monsters too? Of course we could! Because cute doesn't need a reason! So my friend Susan (www.thesloppysewer.blogspot.com) and I are going to host a swap of these monster pillows on Craftster. We are going to call them simply "Hungry Monsters" because they have a mouth that is a pocket.
Wouldn't one of these be a great gift for your friends (both young and old) at Halloween, with some candy in the mouth? And a group of them would look awesome any time of year, just sitting around on your sofa! And who says they have to be only 6" tall? Not me! They could be any size, any fabric...and don't get me started on embellishments...!! Just thinking of what the crafty swappers on Craftster will do with this pattern makes my mind race. I can't wait to see them all! Why don't you join us at www.craftster.com ? The fun will start later this month.
