Do any of you remember the Happy Monster Band that aired on Disney....like forever ago??? They were kinda cute and my kids used to love watching and listening to their silly little songs. We looked them up today for fun...you know to relive the old days. My ten year old kept nervously laughing and saying, "this is a little weird mom". It's sort of sad when they grow up.....sort of.
Today I want to share with you my pattern so that you can make some for your own little monsters.
I created my pattern in a really fancy program called paint.....I know, right?!

The awesome part about this little guy is you can customize like crazy. Add rickrack, a bow, a monogram, ruffles, anything! Also, this is a pretty simple project and would be perfect for beginners.
For this project you'll need:
* 2 coordinating fabrics (for the body)
* cotton, felt, or fleece (for the legs) note: if you use cotton you'll need to add a 1/4 inch seam allowance to the legs.
* Felt (for the eyes)
* Embroidery thread
* hand sewing needles
* scrap of white fabric or felt (for the teeth)
* Fiberfill stuffing
Start by cutting out the back of the monster body in one of your fabrics. Set it aside.
