CHRISTMAS BREAK + FELT FROM KOREA


EQUALS MONSTERS






It's been a long time since I tried my hand at anything with a needle and thread.
But on the first Sunday of Christmas break (perhaps the same Sunday mentioned below),
I sat down with my Korea bag of felt and declared, "who wants to help me make a monster?"
Ashton was the volunteer. He helped me cut, glue, make design decisions and even wanted to try the blanket stitch. We put a little rattle in Alice's monster, and a squeaker in MD's.

Thanks to Ashley for encouraging me that
I could follow through with this
when I hesitated in front of the felt stores at Dongdaemun.
(She convinced me and then I did the opposite of hesitating...)

*please forgive the poor lighting. i was wrapping them up that night
and thus could not wait for the morning sun!
