monsters and smiles

I have been enjoying Junker Janes blog with all of her little stuffed monsters. Her dolls were recently featured on the cover of Stufffed magazine, along with a nice article.

I think I need to try my hand at making a few of these cute guys to decorate for Halloween. I wanted to purchase this doll but he sold before I had a chance to snatch him up.

I couldn't find any skull buttons that spoke to me so I made my own using polymer clay. Now I think I need to make some black ones, too.


It increases your face value.

That is my favorite phrase from a favorite movie of mine...Steel Magnolia's.

LOVE that little doll. I would like to make something like this, but they always end up looking too sweet. I want to make something that looks fierce. Take care, Susan.

I've missed a few of your posts...love the little stuffie, very cute for halloween! Shame you missed buying him, but great that you are so good with the sewing machine and can make some for the occasion.
Those skull buttons are fantastic - you are so clever and innovative.
Really enjoyed this quirky post.
