How to Make Your Own Monster

Jessica Sheeran, creator of Cool Critters, is going to walk us through the steps of creating a monster of your very own.
Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #1: You’ll need two pieces of square felt. Cut two slits for eyes in the front facing panel that will be your monster’s face. Attach the eyes to the back panel (that will be hidden on your monster) and allow the eyes to peek through the slits on the front facing panel. Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #2: Stitch the two pieces of felt together. Make sure the eyes are in the correct place to be seen. Add additional stitching around the eyes for decorative purposes. Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #3: Fold your furry fabric in half. This will be the front and back of your critter. Cut out the face in the shape of an oval. Then pin the face in the top middle of the front of the furry fabric. Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #4: Using a sewing machine, stitch the face shape to the furry fabric. Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #5: Flip the fabric inside out (as if to make a pillow). Then pin it as it is still folded in half. 
 Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #6: Sew the furry fabric together like a pillow in the shape that you’d like your monster’s body to be, leaving only a small hole at one of the corners to turn the fabric right side out again in step #7. Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #7: Turn the fabric right side out and add stuffing through the same hole. Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttStep #8: Stitch the small hole closed and you’re done! Cool Critters / Crafted in CarharttCool Critters / Crafted in Carhartt
