How To Make a Momster

Cut out the printed pattern and lay the body on the RIGHT SIDES of the cuddly fabric and trace. Do the same for the arms, heart, pocket and eye. Now cut all the pieces out. You need to cut 2 arm pieces, 2 body pieces, 1 eye, 1 pocket and 1 heart.  Fold the arm pieces in half length wise, RIGHT SIDE facing inwards and sew as shown in the picture below. Turn the arm inside out and stuff, just a bit. Not too much, they should be floppy so they can give better hugs. Leave a little space at the top, it will make it much easier to sew onto the body later.

Now for the fun bit. On the RIGHT SIDE of the body start laying out your pocket, heart, eye and buttons till you’re happy with the look. Get the kids to help you. Pin the pieces in place and either hand sew on the bits or use your sewing machine. To make the mouth use some black wool and make sure to give your Momster a big, fat smile.

Sew on the face

Sew on the face

Don’t you just want to eat her up. Okay let’s finish her off. Lay the body piece flat, RIGHT SIDE up and put the arms one on either side of the body. Then put the other body piece on top RIGHT SIDE down and pin the arms in place.  Sew around the body  1 cm from the edge and leave a gap just big enough for your hand to fit through at the top. Be careful of the pins and take it slowly when you get to the arms, they’ll be a bit fat and chunky!!  Take your pins out and then turn it RIGHT SIDES out. Stuff firmly.

Sewing up the body

Sew up the gap in her head using a needle and thread and add some wool for hair if you’d like.

You can change the pattern any way you want to. Try making the arms and body longer, shorter, fatter or thinner and send some fotos when you’re done. I’d love to see them. If you making a Momster for tiny little ones, please don’t use buttons for eyes. It could be very dangerous.

If you like the idea don’t forget to pin it for later.
