Description

Playing hide and seek is exciting when you're looking for a monster!

"No Monster Here" takes readers into the imaginative world of brothers, Jacob and Joey, as they search for a monster. The debut work of writer/educator, Colleen Thomas, and illustrator, Alyssa Thomas (Penguin & Fish) explores creative discovery through child’s play. An entertaining adventure for children, parents and teachers.

"No Monster Here" was printed and bound using a local professional printer and bindery, both known for their high quality products. See some of the process here: http://www.nomonsterhere.com/2009/09/16/at-the-printer/

"No Monster Here" is of the quality or better then what you'd find in a bookstore. It's hard, laminated cover and heavy pages will hold up to years of wear and tear.

EMBROIDERY MATERIALS & TIPS

Embroidery Floss: In a craft store, embroidery floss is usually in the cross stitch isle. You can just ask where the embroidery floss is and they should be able to direct you to the right place. To pick out what color floss you want to stitch with, it's best to bring the pattern to the craft store with you, because then you can hold up all the colors next to each other to see what you like the best. Or you can just get a variety pack which is what I do. DMC is the brand that most people use, but sometimes there are cheaper more generic brands that work just as well. Embroidery thread has six threads twisted together, and usually for embroidery you only need three. So once you cut the thread to the length you want to work with, then pull it apart so you have 2 strands with 3 threads each (instead of 1 strand with 6 threads).

Fabric Hoop: This is a hoop that will hold your fabric in place. You don't need one of these but it makes embroidering easier because your fabric will be held flat and taut. With a stretchy fabric (like in a onesie) just make sure not to stretch the fabric in the hoop. You may want to purchase a stabilizer fabric when stitching onto stretchy fabric.

Transferring design: I do this with a light table and a water soluble purple transfer marker. If you don't have a light table you can tape the pattern and fabric to a window and trace the design there. You can get the water soluble marker at a craft store. I like using one of those because the marker lines come out of the fabric easily. You could also use an iron on transfer pencil. If you use one of those then you take the last page of the pattern where the image is reversed... then you draw over all the lines with the iron on transfer pencil... then flip the paper over and iron it directly onto your fabric. The only thing that I don't like as much with this method is that the lines from the pencil are permanent.

Embroidery Needle: Embroidery needles are usually a little longer needles, about 2 - 3 inches long maybe. They have larger eyes so that you can thread them easily. They will probably say embroidery needle on the packaging. A sales person in the craft store should be able to help with this.

The only other thing you'll need is a good movie to watch while you're stitching away.
