This week there is no crochet, not one project on my hook right now (apart from the mermaid tail which I’ve not done any more to). Instead I have a sewing project, or rather 4!
My boss came to see me and asked if I could make some worry monsters for our school to help children with certain emotional needs. She had an idea of what she wanted and I went home and researched, drew a pattern and made a prototype. It got the seal of approval and so I set up a mini production line to make another 3.
So far the only complete one is the prototype. Another is ready to be stuffed and the other two need sewing. Each has a pocket on the front, and the child who owns the monster writes their worry on a slip of paper and buttons it into the pocket, therefore ‘giving’ the worry to the monster. I thought it was a sweet idea and was happy to help.
My plan is to scan in the pattern and write a tutorial, along with a bit more detail about the monsters and their uses.
I happen to think they are pretty smart, and will hopefully finish the others ready to hand over shortly.
What are you working on? My next project is a baby blanket, which I’ll start as soon as the monsters have been completed.
