Picture of Creature scarf
This eyecatching scarf is surprisingly easy to make and has loads of scope for personalising it with your own design. It requires a basic knowledge of sewing and a sewing machine. (I've used an overlocker but thats just because i've got one, a sewing machine will still give you great results)

These r sooo super cute
Plz make more I'll follow u definitely and btw ur sooo pretty a great model.
Wow these are really cute! =^-^=
Love all your monster stuff, I love monsters too! I made both my girls Monster Halloween costumes last year, which included furry monster hats. They have now grown out of them.

I'm planning on making them each one monster scarf as well as your monster hood/hat for winter. We live in the snowy mountains and my older daughter is going to school now I I think the monster hat & scarf would be way cooler than a plain hat & scarf.

I'm sure I could scale this down to fit my daughter since it's just a long rectangle, but I'm wondering how I could size down your hood/hat.
Thanks for this awesome instructable. I made this scarf for my sister for Xmas. Used the leftovers to make some little creatures for other peoples presents. I also sewed a pocket on the back of the monster face for my sister's ipod or headphones too. Heres how it turned out:

I adore the easy and fun project.  Great idea!  

I made two for my young nieces this weekend, so I did cut the size down just a tad. 

I plan to wrap them up as "Homework Helpers".  If you're chilly, he'll warm you up, if you're stuck on a problem, he will whisper wisdom to you. If you're lonely, he is right there to keep you company.

Thanks for the awesome project.

eeee! they're great your nieces are gonna love them!! I really like that flowery lning you used on the white one! :) 
This was all scrap material. That  black is a cute flannel. 

I realized after posting that the pic does not  show that  the blue fur guy has  pink pom pom trim on the lower edge.

I love it. After my friend teaches me to use my new/old sewing machine, I'm going to make one.

i didn't catch how to do the ears??
alittlestranger (author)  pie popper5 years ago
The instructable is for the monster scarf, the other pics are to show what can be done with a little imagination to the pattern. I made the ears from two triangle pieces sewn, turned inside out and attached via a horizontal slit above the eyes. :)
oh ok! my mom had extra fuzzy fabric from a while ago that she got in Egypt. I can make one when we go to JoAnnes to get some felt and stuff!!!
P.S. i will show you a pick when it's finished.

A note on cutting fake fur- if you use a razorblade or an X-acto knife from the backing side, you can totally avoid chopped-up hunks of fur.  You only slice the backing that way.  You can also use an old electric trimmer to mow down the margins to make them easier to sew.
The model is almost as adorable as the scarves are!

I love this instructable, I may try it out soon.
This is great! I love the monster, and I also love that this is a pretty simple sewing project with a really professional looking result. I think this might be the perfect project for teaching my son how to sew (he's 8).
