STEP 3: Cut out felt shapes to make eyes, nose, and mouth for your monster. Consider eyebrows, eyelashes, and teeth too!
STEP 4: Choose which color will be the monster’s face and glue the felt shapes in place.
STEP 5: Begin tying the top and bottom circles together. If you’ve ever made a no-sew blanket, it’s the same technique. Just double knot each fringe. Depending on how you tie it, you can get either the top or the bottom color to be in the front. We chose to have the contrasting color on top. Stop when you have about 3/4 of the circle tied.
STEP 6: Stuff pillow.
STEP 7: Finish tying the rest of the fringes. Then, name your monster and let it ROAR!

My little man was just “reading” over my shoulder and said “Mama look at THAT very fun thing to do, can we do that?” Looks like we will be making some monsters this week 🙂
