October's 1XMAS Project!
Wow, I'm glad I get a few extra hours to complete my 1 XMAS every month, and this month it was down to the wire! I actually finished two other projects, but I can't show them until November. I made this little "monster" from orange fabric that was placed on our "giveaway" table at the quilt guild. It was so soft and fluffy, I just couldn't put it down, so I decided to take it and if I couldn't come up with a use for it I would bring it back during November's Guild meeting. I came up with a few uses, and the monster was the last idea I had, I'm not quite finished with the first use, so I'll post that before the end of the month. I used scraps for his eyelids and mouth. The horns were a little tough, fortunately he isn't supposed to be perfect! I was surprised how much it took to stuff him. He was fun to make and I hope my Great Nephew will enjoy him this Christmas! Happy Quilting!
