One Eyed Monster

Every now and then the häkelmonster blog has to live up to its promise. So here’s another monster (the face inspired by Muno at Yo Gabba Gabba) for you to see.

Made of (left over) cotton I crocheted it quite some time ago but wasn’t too happy with the pictures. And I am still not. No matter what I do – the monster doesn’t seem to like to have its picture taken. It’s a monster after all. In reality it (he?) has a lot more character than in those pictures.

Originally, the eye was a golden-colored button with a sparkling red stone in the middle but J (my best critic as you know) did not approve. Maybe he was right as the eye would really stick out. So I changed it into a flat black button, adding a little red bead as the middle point. And since then the one eyed monster lives happily ever after in J‘s bed. Eventually, I should take a picture of that “monster packed bed” 🙂

If ever the monster gets a sibling it will be a lot thinner with gawky arms and legs. And maybe two eyes: one underneath the other. And maybe thumbs and a belly button. We’ll see.

Enjoy the rest of the week!

And this is the whole body (with “old” eye though).
