Hello hello Sugar Bee readers!
I have the most adorable Monster Craft Tutorial and epic Monster Doll GIVEAWAY for your today!
My name is Heather and I blog over at Twin Dragonfly Designs – I am also the creator of Ya Ya Monster Dolls! I am so thankful that Mandy has invited me to share my colourful, home based business. I absolutely love creating Monster Dolls and can’t wait to share them with you!
These little Monster hoops would be the perfect addition to a child’s bedroom. Let me show you how fun and easy they are to create! You will need:
an embroidery hoop
scraps of felt material
hot glue gun
Begin by cutting out a monster shape from felt. Add fun features like spikes, antennas or limbs. Sew a zig zag stitch around the shape to add interest and attach features to the monster.
Use a hot glue gun to glue facial features to the monster.
Now that you have a cute little monster face lets make an embroidery hoop mat to place it on.
Do you have a large pile of scrap fabric? Framing those scraps with an embroidery hoop is a great way use them up! I found these 4″ hoops at Michaels but have also spotted them at the dollar store and scored a few vintage hoops at the thrift store.
Cut a piece of fabric at least one inch larger than the embroidery hoop.
Fasten the fabric into the hoop and trim off excess material. I like to tighten the hoop and glue excess fabric to the back. Finally glue the monster to the front of the hoop.
Seriously adorable right? The colour and pattern combinations are endless.
I create all sorts of fun Monsters over at Ya Ya Monster Dolls. These embroidery hoops are included in the collection and come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes. Every season I like to create a new Ya Ya to celebrate. Today we are giving away one of these unique Ya Ya Bunnies just in time for Easter! They have the coolest bendable ears, softest minky bodies and perfect little pocket bums. Enter to win below, a winner will be drawn in one week ~ GOOD LUCK!!
