Ribbon Tag Monster

Madelyn is really into getting her hands on anything she possibly can. I made her a ribbon tag blanket when she was first born and she loves it. I found this pattern for a ribbon tag monster a while ago on CraftSchmaft but I was busy doing other projects. I finally found some time this morning and I was able to make it while Madelyn was napping. Here's how it turned out:
But could I actually follow the pattern? Of course not! I added arms and made it look more girly with eyelashes and fuzzy pink minky fabric. I also added some jingle bells inside. I like how it turned out. I think Madelyn does too. She hasn't let go of it since I gave it to her!

How crafty of you!

Thanks for your comment! I get the printing by fusing steam-a-seam lite to the back of a piece of fabric, cutting it to 8 1/2" x 11" and running it through my printer! Leave the paper backing on the fusible web. You can only do this with an ink-jet printer, though- don't do it with a laser printer unless you want a really big mess! I only do this for mini quilts that won't get handled much- for my big quilts I embroider labels on my embroidery machine and stitch them on!

I love the monster! I especially love the look on your daughter's face. What a cutie! As for the pin tucks I talked about on my blog that you commented on, they were super easy. I'll try to do a little tutorial on them this weekend while I'm hibernating in the 4-12" of snow we are supposed to get tonight and tomorrow.
