Look who's soaking up the sun!

RW Junior put in a request for some more of the little monsters hooked a couple of years ago for his friends...
Here are the boys of summer 2014 -


having fun in the afternoon sun!





The chirpy chap below is shaking his tail feathers...

 


.. this smiler has a wibbly foot!


 On previous mini monster projects I have stuck to the pattern and counted religiously...
this time I just went with the flow...
multithreading in single spirals
with medium lengths
from my odds and ends bag..


the compulsory backside view...


Three have bushy tails, one has a hairy hobbit foot...
and one is a complete ball of fluff!


Each has needlefelted features,  all are stuffed full of short ends and happy hooky memories!


It was fun to use the fluffy yarn....
the floor is littered with tiny shards of pink and blue silky reminders!


They weigh in at a monsterous 83g -
a significant proportion will be the stuffing...
now my TUSAL jar is ready to be replenished!

Love the boys 'line up' of 2014.
They look to be having fun hiding in the garden. My favourite is the one in the sunglasses. Super cool!
What fun
