Blobby Rocker Monster Softie

I made this guy (gal?) last night while I was watching TV.  I think she (he?) turned out pretty cute.  I LOVE the movement in IT'S hair.  It is re-purposed from a bunch of scarves that I got from Old Navy for a buck last weekend.

This is the original sketch I drew that inspired the softie:

I know the sketch is REALLY rough people, so don't judge. ;) I really like the horns in the picture, but then as I was playing with fabrics the fringe was just calling out to be hair, so, the horns were ditched in favor of the crazy, rocker style hair.

I hand stitched her face, then pinned her all up inside out and machine sewed her body.  Then I stuffed her and hand sewed up the small hole I had left to turn and stuff her and TA-DA!!

A fun, SUPER soft (it's performance fleece as Old Navy calls it), crazy haired softie for my son to throw around.  Assuming the cats don't get to it first.  I swear my cats think that Eme's toys are really their toys.

  I'm Linkin' Up!!  Check out my side bar for a list of FABULOUS Linky Parties. :)
