Woven Scrap Monster Fatbook Page
I've been planning on doing a woven fatbook page, and today was the day. I made this little guy this morning. He's got elements of other monster plushies I've made and sent away, so it will be nice to have this one as a permanent fixture in my fatbook that I definitely won't be sending away.
After stitching on the face and mouth, the back of this page was a mess of embroidery thread (grrrr, for not thinking ahead) so I took my last loose beaded butterfly and slapped it on with hot glue. Problem solved.
Here's an early progress shot of the weaving. I just used a piece of cardboard with some slits cut into it and pieces from my trusty scrap bin. If anyone wants to try this, make sure there are an odd number of column-strings. If there's an even number, the whole weaving thing just...doesn't happen. Dunno how to explain it... Anyhoo, happy Thursday!
