TO MAKE UP

We recommend using mattress st to sew up your monster. Join front and back together, leaving a small opening at the bottom, fill evenly with hobby fill and close opening. Join arm and leg seams, leaving top open, fill lightly with hobby fill. Having seam at the back of the arm or leg, join top openings.

Sew legs to bottom of body placing leg at side edge. Sew arms to sides of body at shoulders. Join ear seams and fill lightly with hobby fill and sew to either side of head. Join side edges of eyes and sew in position to face. Sew teeth in position, using C1 sew a straight line above teeth for the mouth.
