So, when we tested the pattern for our Hungry Monster Swap, one of the testers had trouble with it, so I am going to take you through it step-by-step. The REAL tutorial is here: http://thelongthread.com/?s=monster+tooth+pillow. I simply hope to clarify things for those in our Craftster.org swap. Here we go!
First, go to the link above and print out the directions. They are all on one sheet, easy! This picture shows all my materials (except the fiberfil stuffing).
Start by pinning on the eyes. I tried putting mine a little lower and closer together than the pattern says to; I found out I like this placement better. Sew the felt circles on. I should have sewn on the buttons here too, but I waited until after the sides were sewn--don't wait!! Sew the complete eyes NOW!
On to the mouth. This is where my tester had trouble. I've pressed a crease into my fabric and cut the teeth (I cut mine freehand, that's why they are a little wonky. I like that!)
Sew the teeth just like you see in this picture: the straight, uncut edge of the felt is placed just ABOVE the pressed crease; the teeth are pointing down, and the orange fabric is flat, not folded.
To finish the mouth, just fold the orange fabric on the crease so the teeth stick up and the line of stitching is on the back.
Place the fabric with the teeth on top of the fabric with the eyes.
(Sorry this next picture is sideways--I can't figure out how to change it, so let's pretend it's right...)
Pin the mouth fabric to the eye fabric, then lay the backing fabric on them, face down. Sew all around, leaving a 3" opening for stuffing. (I left my opening on the top, since there are only two layers of fabric there to contend with).
Turn the monster right side out, and stuff with fiberfill. Sew the opening closed.
Get together with your friends and PAR-TAY!!
