month of softies: recycled monster

I usually like doing a month of softies because it challenges me to create something I wouldn't ordinarily be making. Recycled monsters are kinda my thing though...and here's another one. This is Aster. She's made from a felted sweater and stuffing from a discarded pillow. Her skirt is from a vintage sheet (the rest of which was made into a duvet cover for Mia).

The last few days I have felt like I was under a "crafter's curse". Everything I attempt seems disappointing, my normally trustworthy sewing machine has been acting tempermental, I have started and abandoned several projects. I had to force myself not to toss Aster! It was Mia who saved her from the trash heap.
