In My Shop: Matchbox Monsters

Got a hankering for a little weeny monster tucked up all nice and cozy in his own matchbox?  Why yes, you say?    Well, I just so happen to have about a dozen of them in my shop, awaiting someone just like you to take one (or 2 or 3 or however many) home.  They come fully outfitted in a nappie (the sort you never, ever have to change--I think they are self-composting)  and with their own little fringed blankie so they can be tucked sweetly to sleep when not at play.  Find them here.

Those are so awesome! My son would love these because he loves super small toys! We used to always make little matchbox containers when I was a younger - kicking myself for not thinking of this! Clever, good job!!!

Love these. So very cute and each one with its own personality. My favourite sewing involves characters, I just can't stay away from them and love to bring them to life just as you have done here. The boxes are so sweet too and I love the touch of them having a little home. I expect they will sell very well, great work!

I said I'd pop back with a link, so here you go: http://verydarkhorse.blogspot.com/2011/10/and-finally-tiny-teds.html

Mine are nowhere near as cute as your little nappy-ed monsters though! Based on Tiny Ted's Big Adventure by Peter Bowman, which was the theme of my two-year-olds party... I made such a huge bunch of mini stuff...

I hope you don't think I'm silly for putting my link on here, just thought you might be a like-minded mini-things-lover, and may want to have a wee squiz! x

First of all, thank you for all the monster love. Too kind.

Second: you should all go check out Stella's link to her blog and the Tiny Teds she made and their itty bitty patchwork quilts. Those quilts are so sweet I think I need to brush my teeth.

Third: you are all aware that you can make your own matchbox monster--right? The design with full templates and instructions are in the Microcrafts book that just came out a few weeks ago. Anyone can make one for yourself--and they are 100% handsewn so you do not even need a sewing machine.
