I made this silly little monster from wonderful 100% cashmere sweater, it may be the softest cashmere ever! It is such a nice dark heathered and fuzzy cashmere. I washed it multiple times trying to get it to shrink just right. You might be surprised how hard it is to get cashmere to shrink up. I love, love, love his silly little face, the nose is a funny looking seam that just screamed "nose" and his face is a really hairy angora and wool blend. There is just something about this silly monster that tugs at my heartstrings. He has a purple cashmere pocket stitched to his chest just right for holding a treasure or possibly a tooth for the tooth fairy. I love making these guys, I love sifting through my huge pile of scraps and picking out the different colors to use on their horns and noses and hearts. It always reminds me of all the other creatures that I have used these same sweaters scraps on. He is just over 10 inches tall.
All upcycled monsters are made of felted wool and cashmere sweaters that are no longer fashionable or wearable. It gives me a real sense of accomplishment to turn them into sweet, huggable creations.
