I Need My Monster Activity

I had a blast creating this DIY Monster Doll using It’s Always  Autumn Felt Monster Pattern. I had extra Halloween fabric so I decided to use that instead of felt for the body. I am very pleased with the outcome.  This adorable doll will accompany me as I read I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll to my little buddies. 

DIY Monster Doll

Supplies

Instructions

  • Cut out the monster pattern out of fabric.
  • Cut out felt eyes, mouth or teeth.
  • Hand stitch the felt piece on the front panel of doll.
  • Put right sides together and sew a 3/8 inch seam around the the monster. Be sure to leave a gap so you can turn the doll inside out.
  • Use a pencil or chopstick to make sure all the curves are pushed out.
  • Fill the doll with Poly-Fil. I would recommend making the doll firm by using an ample amount of filling.
  • Hand stitch the opening closed.

Bonus

I would also recommend watching Rita Moreno’s wonderful rendition of the I Need My Monster story on the Screen Actors Guild Foundation Storyline Online.
