A Real Life Monster

I had all of the kids draw a picture of their own 'monster' today. The idea was they would create and then I would make a softie out of it. I have seen people all over the internet doing this very thing and just had to try it! What a great way to capture their creation!

Here is my first one (in order of who gave me their's first)--Xander's:
He was very excited about the process of making this little guy...can't wait to show him the finished product in the morning!!

This is a fabulous idea! I can just imagine your sons excitement when he saw something he created in his imagination come to life. So cool!

That monster is amazing and what a great idea! If I had any sewing ability whatsoever, I would attempt it! But, Alas, I do not! Oh well, I will just admire your creation!!
