Yellow Softie Monster

I was bored last night while Jason was out watching the super bowl, and although I was still feeling woozy on the couch, I decided to take the excess time to begin on the softies collection I have envisioned for Jude. (I know, I’m making him toys before anything practical? Right. I am.) I saw this photo awhile back and knew I had to try to replicate that little monster. He needs a name. Anyone have any suggestions?

As you can see, Malachi claimed him as his new friend. Oh the rude awakening for that poor cat in a couple of months! Anyways, once ‘yellow monster’ has a name, I’ll post a line drawing pdf of him so that you guys can replicate him too (is anyone interested?). He could take on all sorts of variations. I think he’d be a lot of fun with some big felt eyes and maybe a necktie. I just sewed on some buttons and stitched him up a little mouth. Nice and simple. I like him because he’s reminiscent of a bat, and if you know anything about Austin, we love our bats down here.

Now, on to some sock monkeys, various food item softies, and maybe a few other monsters. 🙂 (Have I mentioned I have a soft spot in my heart for weird softies?) Maybe someday I will work on something that is a little more of a necessity!

    Is there any danger of Jude biting off and swallowing those button eyes?

    Yeah, but I’ll probably be replacing the buttons with white felt and stitched eyes before Jude is to the point where he’s biting on anything – I just didn’t have any last night and I really wanted to finish the monster.

    I think he looks like and Oscar.

    I would love to know how to make him!

    Love it! He’s a ‘Little Ugly’ apparently – my coworkers were talking about this line of softies the other day at lunch.

    I adore it. Oh man. So cute. Another reason to learn to sew. Still…it’s gonna be a while. (:
