Because monsters seem to be the theme of my blog for the last few posts, here are some more.  I've decided to call them Franken-Stuffs.  (Get it?  Cause they're stuffed.  And they're monsters.  And it's funny ... right?)

This guy's name is Brutus.

Trapazoid Man is named Cantaloupe:

Queazy Quinn doesn't feel well:

Zig and Zag (though I'm not sure which is which):

One big happy family:

I've had so much fun making these monsters and I've learned a lot about sewing as I made them.  Everybody keeps telling me that I should sell these guys but it's just not cost effective to sit and sew these guys all day.  What I am going to do though is try and get some sewing patterns together and sell those online (probably on Etsy or something.)  So if you want one of these Franken-Stuffs for your very own, keep your eyes peeled.  The patterns will be available soon (and by soon I mean about a month or two.)

Just curious, which pattern do you folks think I should start with?

These are amazing! Especially since sewing and fabric are all pretty much wizardry and black magic to me.

I love cantaloupe. There's something hilarious about the straight-line, slightly slanted mouth.

These are awesome. My daughter wants one.

Psh. your daughter...

I want one! (And I'm probably way bigger than Aaron's daughter.)
Your work is stellar lately, Will. If/when you get around to selling these or the patterns, I'm first in line.

I love Trapezoid man and Queazy Quinn. I have a friend who sews things like this for her etsy business. She might be able to help you out by making them for you.

They are too stinkin' cute! You're amazing!

I like Trapezoid :) They are all looking superb, Will. How did the show go? How is post-graduation?

I love these all. My boys would go crazy to get any of these.

Will, Can I have my own Cantaloupe? He kills it! These guys are awesome.
Keep me posted.
