Fold a large piece of paper in half. Draw half a monster shape onto it and cut it out with scissors. Unfold the paper to see the completed monster shape – this will form a template for your doorstop.
Fold an old or unwanted towel in half and pin your template onto it. Cut around the template with scissors.
Remove the template and pin together the two cut out pieces of material. Using a needle and thread, sew along the edge of the two pieces. As you stitch them together, leave a gap at the top. Turn the stitched pieces of material together inside out by pulling them through the gap – you can use a pen to help push them through. Your monster’s body should now be taking shape.
Take some old socks, fill them with pebbles and stuff them inside your monster’s body. Sew up the gap at the top.
Decorate plastic bottle tops with marker pen and glue these to your monster to make his eyes. Glue old pieces of material to your monster to make his mouth, teeth and other features.
By filling your monster with soft material, you can turn it into a cushion or a cuddly toy.
