Monster’s University Crochet Monster

Mikey of The Crochet Crowd hosted a crochet-along in 2014. It was great fun and I was pleasantly surprised that it was a crochet monster.

In August 2014, I joined my very first crochet-along. Hosted by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd, it was great fun. I was delighted it was a crochet monster – Mike Wazowski no less!

Inspired by the 2013 Monster’s University movie, a prequel to Monsters, Inc. (2001), which tells the story of two monsters, Mike and Sulley, and their time studying at college, where they start off as rivals, but slowly become best friends.” source

The Crochet-Along

Mikey from The Crochet Crowd worked together with Stacey Trock of Fresh Stitches.

Stacey designed this character and received special permission from Disney. Want to make Mikey? As a Registered Trademarked item, there are certain restrictions in place that you should make yourself aware of.

This crochet-along boasts over 900 photos. It’s incredible to see how differently everyone interpreted the accessories that they added to their dolls.

You can visit the Mike the Monster Gallery to see for yourself. Here are some of the monsters made by other participants.

Making My Crochet Monster

I recall very clearly that I was at the summer with the family. The children were young – my daughter 8 and my son 6. We were all very excited to see what it was going to make up as the strange pieces appeared.

The final touches were the most fun as it became a family affair. Hubby came up with the idea of a uni-brow, Grandma J came up with the idea to make it fuzzy, and my son wanted the mouth and teeth “just so”. Not sure you can tell but the bottom tooth is a half-tooth to represent my son’s new half-grown bottom tooth.

I completed my Mike the Monster on July 29, 2014. Here’s the result.

Wonder Woman Crochet Hat

I had a custom order from a client to make a Wonder Woman crochet hat. She sent me a few photographs and I meshed the ideas together. This is what I came up with. I think the pom poms are my favourite part!

November 2010 Wedding Quilt

I was nominated on Facebook to show three works I have made for 5 days. I have already posted some on my More Than A Mom blog but I thought the subject was interesting and I want to share them with The Ruthless Crafter blog also. You may enjoy reading about my quilting journey as I increase the complexity of techniques and as the sewing machines I use have evolved. This queen-sized quilt was made for my cousin Diana​’s wedding in November 2010. I believe it was the second quilt I ever made. I used a walking foot on my
