Love Monsters

Make a cuddly Love Monster for someone you love.

This Valentine’s why not make a cuddly monster instead of sending a card?

This was a fun activity before I even started sewing. I cut all the shapes out of felt and laid them out for the boy and girl to play, rearrange, make funny faces. We spent about an hour doing this!

Once we’d decided the final designs I got my sewing machine out to sew and embroider all the pieces on the monsters.

When the monsters were ready to stuff I sewed all around the body shapes leaving a gap.  After stuffing, I pinned the gap closed and sewed to finish.
Note: Toy stuffing can be expensive so instead buy a cheap cushion pad, split open and use the stuffing from that.

What you’ll need:

Cotton thread
