I got such an amazing positive feedback from many, many people concerning my monsters that I decided to give all my blog readers a little gift: A tutorial to make your own RevoluzZzionary Monster. Itâ€™s a simple one and even if you are a beginner you should be able to do it.
If you have any questions while you are making the monster - just contact me. And you can make the monster with a very simple sewing machine - you only need a simple stitch and a zigzag stitch.
And the cute little monster I made during this tutorial - its name is Ninni - will be drawn by lot (my daughter and I like the RevoluzZza ribbon â€œlotteryâ€ that much that we want to have another â€œRevoluzZza lotteryâ€ :-)). Just leave a comment and on Friday my cute little daughter will draw by lot who will give the little beast a new home. Everybody can join - no matter where you live.
OK, letâ€™s get started!
Download the pattern, print it and cut out the pattern. I chose to use different fabrics for the front and the back of the monster:
Pin the pattern on the fabrics and cut it out:
Serge the part which you will use later to close the monster with a blind stitch:
Cut out the felt eyes and sew them on the front fabric:
Now fix the felt tooth (or teeth if you want to give your monster not just one tooth) while you sew the mouth with a narrow zigzag stitch:
After you fixed the inner eyes you simply stitch a cross on the eyes by hand:
Stitch the felt heart on the monster front:
Now pin the front and the back of the monster with needles and sew the two parts together - but leave the part open which you will use to turn the monster inside out (the part you serged before):
Now you have to cut some parts of the monster: the ears, over the little arms and between the legs (like shown on the pattern you downloaded). Serge the monster with a zigzag stitch - narrower on the parts you cut:
â€¦ and this is the best moment when you create monsters and any kind of dolls and stuffed things: When you turn it inside out and see the final creature. Still a very flat monster - but already a monster
Itâ€™s almost finished. Now we only have to stuff the little beast with doll wadding and close it with a blind stitch by hand:
