Pretty Little Monsters Free Pattern From Lisa Bunting Thoms of Q.D. Patooties

I just LOVE softies - especially the ones that Lisa Bunting Thoms designs for  Q.D. Patooties. In fact, I like to say I'm her biggest fan.  Of course, Lisa has many, many fans.  Meet "Pretty Little Monsters!"  They're too adorable to resist.

Here's the instructions and what Lisa said about her pattern:  I was going to put this up last night but my scanner was acting up. So I finally finished my monsters and have drawn up the pattern so you guys can make your own! I was going to upload it last night but my darn scanner would not cooperate.  So here it is in all it's Monster-y glory.

All you need to do is to click on the pattern. After you click, the pattern will enlarge. Then, just right click and "Save Image As" to save it to your computer. Then print it out.  All of the instructions are printed directly on the pattern.

There are instructions on the pattern but I'll go over them for you here as well.  Please note there is a 1/8" seam allowance built into this pattern.  Trace the pattern onto the wrong side of your fabric.  Working with the two back pieces, place right sides together.  Sew from Point a to Point B and from Point C to Point D making sure to leave your opening for stuffing.  Open your fabric and then pin the front side of of the monster to the back side with right sides together.  Sew, turn, fray chek and clip cures.  Stuff and sew up the back of your monster using a ladder stitch.  When you give him a face, you have a choice.  You can either make a "cheering monster" or a "jeering monster." The "cheering monster" will have his hands up in the air and be happy and the "jeering monster" will have his hands down by his side and be all sad.  So with one pattern you get a twofer -- two monsters in one!

After you make your monster, I'd love to see them. If you're on Flickr, it's really easy by joining the q.D.PaToOtieS group there.  I will start picking some of the photos I find on there to share on my Blog.
