I can make that...


Have you heard of Uglydolls? This past Sunday, Nate and I were in a local bookstore in the village that sells these toys. We had gone to the village just so Nate could ride his bike on the canal path and then have ice cream at the shop next door to the bookstore. I didn't bring enough money to buy one of these dolls even if he had begged me to.

Instead I said, "Nate, I can go home and make one of those. We don't need to buy one." Famous last words. Of course, we had to go straight home, and I had to prove to him that I could make one.

Luckily, I remembered that I had downloaded a pattern not too long ago on Pinterest. Here is that link if you'd like to get the pattern, too.


Nate loves it. He named it Monster, Inc. LOL. Then he made me put Monster, Inc. on TV so he could show his new little Monster where he came from. HAHA!

So, famous last words ... don't say, "I can make that," to a 5 year old unless you can—cuz he'll make sure you do!

Thanks for stopping by today to see my endeavor into sewing felt monsters.

LOL!! That's great! I say the same thing. I ended up making a laptop case, 3 book bags, and some notebooks for school. You did a fabulous job and the most rewarding is that your son LOVED it. :-)

Good job! Reminds me of a movie where these two girls were walking through the Forum Shops in Las Vegas and passed the Versace store and one of them said she wanted the dress in the window. Her friend said she could make it and they should go to the fabric store. The first girl ended up buying the dress, though.

Thats is the most adorable monster I have ever seen!!! Kids dont forget a thing and patience is usually not one of their strong points. Your a good mom! Do you think you could whip up an angry bird for me?? Cole has been begging for a stuffed angry bird but I am not sure I could make one! :)

This post made me smile. While on vacation last week, we were in a shop that sold these. I bought each of my youngest 2 boys one. I love that you made yours. It's awesome!
