The 24 Days of Gift Suggestions: Day 4

Ugly Dolls: so ugly they're adorable. These soft and cuddly monsters have been a hit at Vroman's the last couple of years, and now we have them in both the original size and mini keychain versions. If you'd like to try your hand at creating your own version of an Ugly Doll, check out...

Fabric scraps, old neckties, buttons, yarn, fake fur, and felt are just some of the materials you can use to create 30 different odd but lovable creatures: Hexapus is an octopus missing two arms. The Gingerbread Men have bites taken out of them. Llorie the Bipolar Cloud is fluffy and white on one side, black and threatening on the other. This book is so easy to use (and its patterns so forgiving) that even a sewing novice like me would have no trouble whipping out a few of these guys in time for the holidays!
