MINI MONSTER C.A.L. DAY #5 – FINAL FREAKY DETAILS FOLKS!
It’s Day #5 of the Hookanory Mini Monster C.A.L,
FREAKY FRANKEN-EGG FRIDAY!
IT’S TIME FOR THE DREADFUL DETAILS !!
……..and it’s the LAST DAY of the @hookanory Mini Monster C.A.L.!
Today is just about adding the stitching details to your Frankie Franken-egg, it’s super easy – you just need to embroider a blanket stitch edging to the flat part of his head, and then I added a row of zig-zag v shaped stitching underneath to resemble a hairline (oops forgot to put that in my graphics below!)
I made my Franken-egg a smiley chap but you could create any expression you like. Maybe he’s an angry monster or a bit bemused and bewildered? Anyway if you want yours to look like mine you can use the little stitch diagram I’ve made on my graphics to help. The dots represent the background stitches and the big dots are the safety eyes
The legs are attached in the front third of the body with a 2-3 stitch gap and angled slightly so that the legs sit wide apart and it gives Franken-egg a little bottom to sit on. Whip stitch carefully around both sides of the leg using the long tails left when making them. The arms sit in the centre of the side of the body on the line where the colour changes from green to grey. Stitch both sides the same as the legs. As I mentioned yesterday Bolts look better if they are stitched right through the head. When weaving in ends of limbs etc , bring the thread tail out away from the part you are sewing and carefully pulling it taut, cut the thread, that way if under tension, when you cut it it will disappear inside the project.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed taking part! If you’ve just found us, then there’s still just enough time to join in and enter our fab competition!
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR : This is not a comp for just the most specialist super dooper professional make, (though that doesn’t mean you can’t win if yours is made like a pro), We want it to be inclusive and open to beginners as much as seasoned hookers…so we are looking for the most creative/interesting/fun photo of your make. So if you want to photograph yours in a spooky or unusual location, or create your own scene, or just make yours super arty or fun then go for your life!
I will accept still or animated/enhanced images providing you have stuck to the pattern (in shape – colours can be your own vibe!) , and as long as I can see your make in the image (basically don’t make it so fancy you can’t see your monster!)
