My beloved monster

This empathy monster’s just perfect for this week’s Macabre Monday challenge. I actually made this last year, but I haven’t shared it with you yet.

If you’d like to know more about the concept “empathy monster”, visit Art, heart and Healing. By becoming a member of this group, you get free  access to several interesting video tutorials on journaling,  drawing whimsicals and sewing your own monster.

To make this monster even more special, I used bits and pieces that are somehow meaningful to me.  The skulls’ fabric was recycled from the lining of one of my boyfriend’s old trousers. I also confiscated the button. For the stitches, I used embroidery thread that my grandmother gave me.
