I simply loved it!!! Super cute and soft :)). It was delivered promptly, and in a very nice wrapping paper, with an also very nice letter from the seller. Thank you very much!

Fun, Unique Designs

I opened Monster Den in 2010 as an outlet for my creative ideas and need to make and design the strange and wonderful monsters that would pop into my head!

My work space at home is a mixture of organised fabrics, yarns, tools and drawings and a chaotic mess of activity! I am often making and toying with several ideas at a time as new inspiration drives me to start new projects before existing ones are finished.

I find inspiration in nature, being outdoors and everyday common items seen in a whole new light! I love colourful, fun felt fabrics and chunky yarns and enjoy using them to make fun monsters and animals. I like to think about what sort of creature I am making, what it enjoys doing, its favourite foods and colours and what it is looking for in life.

I was raised in a crafty household where drawing, crafting and creating was encouraged and praised. My mother taught me to knit and sew at an early age, fueling my creativity with her own designs and homemade delights. Christmas and Birthdays always contained handmade toys and clothes that were a delight to play with and wear.

    Hi, my names Tara and I like to make things. I've always made things and it doesn't look like i'm going to stop anytime soon either. I like things that are fun, geeky or quirky. So I have a nice collection of knitted friends, felt monsters & animals.
