Shiny Happy Monsters feeling glad...

19 Sep 2007

Here they are . . . Glove Monsters! I was trying to come up with a vaguely Halloween-themed project for the October Church of Craft meeting, and finally it hit me: knit gloves are the perfect medium for monster-making, because you can create so many appendages! Monsters need plenty of appendages.

I had a complete blast making these two -- a very free-form process, although if anyone wants a tutorial, I'd be glad to put one together. Really, it's only by sheer force of will that I'm getting any work done today. All I really want to do is make more glove monsters.

. . . I never thought I'd find myself regretting having passed up that bright green eyelash yarn in the clearance bin. :-)

UPDATE: I'm so excited to see people making glove monsters! Link over and see Rachel's hot pink creature, made from a dollar-bin glove from Target, and also Cherish's cute stripey monster, with the awesome pompom on its head.

Those rock. I would love a tutorial if you have time to put one together.


ee! ee! ee! i think toby's going to have a new friend! and yes, i would like a tutorial, because sewing is like speaking russian to me. :)


Excellent. What a great halloween project. Do you have the saying 'I'm all fingers & thumbs!' in America?


I love the mouth and teeth on the orange one ... and how her belly sort of juts up into her neck. Rawr!


Sooo cute. I would love the tutorial as well. Also, Goodwill has lots of brand new knit gloves for $1. Looks like lots of fun.


Diane-these guys are adorable! I love them both. I think my favorite detail is the clear beads for the orange guys teeth. What a wonderful imagination you have!


You are freaking brilliant! What a great combo of re-using, fun and hilarity. I love it! Just - Just - BRILLIANT! :)
