We've been sending so many Iris kits out to shops lately that I decided it was time for me to jump on the bandwagon and make one for LJ. LJ isn't due to make her appearance in the world for a couple of months, but I'm sure she'll need a monster to keep her company.
I mixed things up a little with my version of Iris The Gourmet Monster. First, I rummaged through my button tin for her eyes. I think I like these better than the ones that come in the kit. Somehow they seem homier. Or maybe I'm just channeling Coraline. Who knows?
I also decided she needed an orange bow. The button tin had a few yards of random ribbon and there was just enough of this orange organza to do the trick.
She's made from just one skein of our Green Line DK in the colorway Mirth. Between the mirth and the smile, I hope LJ is full of giggles and fun.
