Monster Doll Tutorial

***Visit my etsy shop to purchase your very own Monster Doll***

It’s here! The tutorial for these little cuties…. Monster Dolls that is! I created a batch of these to accompany my boys’ birthday party invitations. Each invitee got to keep a silly monster of their very own!  You can find individual monster photos here.

Monster Doll Tutorial I began by creating a template {in purple} and cutting monster parts out of felt material.

Monster Doll Tutorial Then I traced the template onto my green flannel and cut out two sides {monster front and back}.

I pinned my monster parts onto one of the sides.
Monster Doll TutorialAnd began sewing my parts on. Sewing circles? Go slowly as you guide your fabric through your sewing machine. For the smaller circles I stopped sewing with my needle through the fabric, lifted my sewing foot thingy {sorry I don’t know what it’s called lol}, turned my fabric, put the foot thingy down and continued sewing.
Monster Doll Tutorial When I finished sewing my monster parts onto one side, I pinned the right sides of my front and back together. I sewed my sides together, about 1/4 cm from the edge, leaving a 1″ hole open. I turned my doll inside out, filled with stuffing and hand sewed the 1″ hole closed {sorry I forgot to take pictures of this!}

    These are so cute! (um I mean, cool- boys don’t like ‘cute’ things so my 10 year old says!) I’ve seen them done with all felt, but the flannel has got to be easier to work with, thanks for the tutorial!

    BTW the ‘foot thingy’ is called a presser foot
