My Little Monster, the Tee version

Don't we all have a little monster at home? I was inspired by these 2 projects

Love Monster & Tooth Fairy Pillow here to create a monster tee out of some scrap fabrics, felt, rick rack & a plain toddler tee.

PS - don't you just love rick rack? it if fun to say, spell & use for embellishment!
I cut a 6x9 piece of jersey from an old tee of mine & folded it about 2/3 of the way down so that it is now a 6x6 square for the face. This fold forms a little pocket, but also is my monsters under bite. At the top edge of the fold, I stitched the rick rack. Then I stitched the square on to the center of the tee.

Here is the pocket.

I cut some circles out of felt for the eyes. I played with them a bit to determine what expression I wanted the monster to have.
I simple stitched the eyes on to the tee thru all layers of felt at 1 time & the tee was done!

Now, If I could only get my other Little Monster to model it on for a few photos!
