Plush Monsters


Art Start November-December 2014

Art Start students spent five classes working hard on these great little plush sculptures.  They first sketched monsters, then cut out and traced the paper pattern onto fleece. The fleece was cut out, pinned to another piece, and cut out again. Then the two pieces were sewn together at the edges (lots of new skills!). We turned the monsters inside out, stuffed with polyfil, sewed them shut, then added details by cutting and gluing fleece scraps.
