Scrap Monster Lovie

As usual I have about 23,687,865,169,876,345 projects started... not so many getting finished! Haha! When you're working on lots of little things, though, you end up with lots of scraps. So, I wanted to make something that was quick and utilized all those little bits of fabric that were piling up (literally). I decided to make a monster "lovie".

This isn't a detailed tutorial, per say. All I really did was gather some fabrics that somewhat coordinated, but really they don't have to. I did try to stick to bold, fun fabrics that would be eye-catching for my son. Honestly you could just lay out your fabrics and start pinning and sewing. Since, I'm a perfectionist and way too high-strung I had to first sketch it out and make a big fuss (maybe this is why I never finish projects?).

Here's the final product:

Adorable in an obnoxious sort of way, isn't he? His body is made from some flannel I got in the remnant bin, and the rest is scraps I had lying around. These guys are a great way to use up those scraps you having lying around that aren't big enough for other projects! Enjoy!
