Monster Done

Here he is:

Fierce isn't he?  I'm quite pleased that the directional "fur" turned out, but I did make some mistakes. I cut the seam allowance off of the right side of the "eye" part and had to add a piece, which you can't see, but I can. Then I put in extra teeth on that side, as well. That won't get changed. It's a mistake way into the piece, and I probably won't fix it. I'll make another - after some time passes - and I'll lighten his eyes on it, too.  I do like the yellow teeth, after all, monster books don't brush. (That little neck at the bottom is seam allowance.)
Yesterday I was challenged to make a basket... That's the next thing to sew.
See you soon.
