Crazy creatures

We had some fun making this stuffed Sock Monsters with Camila´s odd socks and she enjoyed picking buttons up , choosing the felt for the eyes and creating many shapes to make a new friend!
She brought to me from her US trip, a very interesting book : Sewing for children by Emma Hardy and after looking at all chapters she wanted me to make these Sock Monsters and the good point is that it didn´t take us 30 minutes to make one!

This one was her creation, she took the piece that I ´ve cut to make the first monster and she made this one as a puppet.

This one looks like a flying bunny!

And all the family monster we made in this sunny Sunday afternoon!

Wishing you a lovely week full of joy and good things!!!
