Build a Monster

The boys came over on Saturday for a sleepover.  Originally I had thought about having them make Valentines, but I saw a website with Ugly dolls.  After looking at them, I decided that this would be a fun and creative project for the boys....actually for Caleb, the 6 year old.  Jack is 2 years old and we let him supervise.  So this is the result....


Caleb wanted his guy to have eyes that look excited...what do you think?
He drew a picture of the face and this is what he came up with...
cracked me up!  Exciting eyes!

Meet Jack and Spaz, with a bit of supper left on his face...oops!  

The most rewarding part of the whole thing was a statement that Caleb made. He said..."Gramma, this is really neat!  We are taking scraps of fabric, sewing them together and turning them into something brand new."  Maybe he will be a quilter someday?

Those "ugly" dolls are adorable! (So are the little boys!) Can you share where you found the pattern?

How cute! My 4 yr old just made Zee pillow from Nick Jr.com. He thought it was so neat he slept with it.
