a little ‘thing’ has been created...

Today I asked my son what he would like to do and he said
“sew a monster please”. Oh! 
Not wanting to quash a creative urge I asked him to draw a design of how he would like his monster to look and he created something so specific I knew this was not going to be an easy task.  We found the ‘exact’ fabric and felt and drew the most specific templates known to any monster maker.  We also had to incorporate a heart and four bells, this was for the ‘character’ my son told me.  We set to making the little fella and I encouraged my son to be as hands on as possible so, other than when using the sewing machine, it has been lovingly created with his own fair hands.  I have to say I really enjoyed the process and am inspired that from some off cuts of fabric and two wobbly eyes a little ‘thing’ has been created that is unique and a product of my sons imagination.
My son has named him Jingles (due to the bells) and he currently sits at the end of his bed looking very dapper indeed.
The start of something ...
The all important heart ♥
Ta dah!
