Lovable Monster Doll

Don't call this little guy ugly! Kids (and childlike adults) will fall in love with this DIY plushie. A Lovable Monster Doll from Heather Valentine is so easy to make. Use fabric scraps or repurpose and old piece of clothing to create your very own doll.

Lovable Monster Doll
 

Materials:

  • Ric rac trim
  • Fabric scraps (I reclaimed an old cord skirt & a piece of tee shirt from the Kitty)
  • Double sided fusible
  • Polyfil

Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of ric rac about 5″ long and toss it in the laundry and watch what comes out! (so fun)
     
  2. To create eyes, I used double sided fusible and cut circles from scrap fabric.
     
  3. Then, I just free formed this guy. No real shape here, just fun!
     
  4. Machine tack the eyebrows in place; position and fuse eyes; add a heart detail and maybe some stitching for fun. To create the mouth- straight stitch a line and then go back over with zig zag. (I like to leave part of the straight stitch exposed on each side.)
     
  5. With right sides together, match front and back. Pin in place and straight stitch all around, leaving approx 2 1/2″ open at the bottom. Depending on your shape, trim corners, clip curves and turn right side out. Lightly press.
     
  6. Fill with stuffing.
     
  7. Pin and slip stitch the bottom opening closed.
