Elliot's Monster Toy

This is Elliot's monster with spiky bits on the ears and three legs. I made him from calico, the orange lines are heat transfer vinyl. I machine stitched around the edges. So it wouldn't fray I painted the edges with PVA and also painted the legs and ears to make them stiff. Then stuffed him.

Below is Elliot's original drawing, I tidied it up a little and cut it from vinyl on a digital cutter
I did have a go at altering it even more but I like the cuteness of the original drawing so decided to do the toy from that.

He also had a go at writing his name so I put that on the back with the date.
I'm probably a biased Grandma but I think he does very good drawings for a three year old [just 3 in December]

Others pictures, this one is his dad
This one is a self portrait with belly button
And this one is of me, his Grandad and his mum
