A new project, for a new weekend…

June 15, 2008 at 2:09 pm (sewing)

I am still trying out for the aunty of the year award. So there is a great and urgent need for a new project. If so my sister is not really participating…

So what is it everybody needs? A striped sea monster. So I draw the shape of the Loch Ness Monster, and copied it with a 0,5 cm sewing allowance on an old newspaper.


Please no judgement about my drawing skills. Then choose a soft fabric. 

And copy the design to the fabric.

For a 3D effect you need to make 2 pieces of the total shape, 2 pieces of the tummy and foot area and if you want to add wings or other stuff draw and cut them too.

Pin the big body parts together and sew them together. Leave an opening for the tummy and the foot area. 

Pin the foot-tummy part securely in and sew. 

After fitting the pieces in close the tummy but leave a gab for turning and later filling.



Fill the loch ness monster (I used a granulate material, which is washable and safe for small children.)

And close up the tummy.

I hope you could follow my explanations.
