Children at Hope Gardens Family Center
Needles & yarn

YAY!!! 77 Monsters

This is my 3rd year doing this project with my church Youth Group. I am making & collecting hand knit/crochet monsters to donate to Hope Gardens Family Center (homeless shelter for women & children). Each child at the shelter will receive a handmade monster as a gift for the holidays. (Approx 70-100 monsters needed)

The project was very successful in past years (2011, 2012) the kids love receiving the monsters.

If you could help out by knitting or crocheting a monster & have it to me by November 16, 2013, they will be delivered to the kids in early Dec.

I will accept all types of monsters as long as they are kid friendly & can be used by the kids for bedtime snuggling. They can be any type of yarn (please no mohair or angora) as long as they are soft enough to snuggle with at bedtime without being scratchy or itchy. No buttons or other attachments that might pose a choking hazard to small children. (Safety eyes are OK for the older children.) Monsters should also be machine washable, as a well loved monster will get a bit dirty & need many baths.

I have also designed my own knitted monsters that you can download for free: Otto and Pockets & Baby.

A great pattern for sewn monsters is McCall’s Crafts M5826

If you would like to help out & donate, please PM me & I will give you my address, so you can send your monster donation.

Thank you
