The monster ball

It’s half-term holidays and my craft table has been taken over by a melange of junk modelling, cut and paste collages and a troupe of plastic princesses wearing animal heads (apparently en-route to a masked ball). So I’ve packed away my sewing machine and decided to dedicate this week to completing some portable hand sewing projects instead.

Today I finished the neglected gang of soft toy monsters. They’re made from left-over fabrics from previous dressmaking projects. 

I’ve become particularly attached to the Paco twins who are made from remnants of a piece of psychedelic Paco Rabanne printed cotton I found in a tiny fabric shop in Brighton’s North Laines 10 years ago. Sadly the matching dress no longer fits me…
