Deranged eats negativity!


Meet Deranged my wacky monster that we had to make for week 3 of the willowing art course. I have never made a soft toy like this before so decided to make it completely wacky and over the top. The striped material is off an old fav t-shirt that unfortunately got bleach over it. I have used the inside of a broken clock for one of its eyes and an old broken zip for its mouth. This is supposed to be an empathy monster which eats up all negativity! Well as long as he makes you laugh I have succeeded...

Love him! I'm not sure if my comment went through (you may have monitoring on it which means you may get this twice :) BUT I wanted to make sure you know how much I love this - especially the eyes and the fact that you got the zipper to smile . . . xo

Very cool Lorraine! I love seeing how everyone makes their monsters (and the other stuff). They all have so much personality. I'm only just cutting out the pieces for mine (after being floored with a heavy cold last week) and can't wait to get started.

He's just great and looks like he'd be a good suitor for my traveling doll, Candace.
I bet you could really get going on a whole series of these!
