hand-knit party favors come to life

|


My wildly creative and lovely friend Sara knit these little monsters as party favors for her son's 3rd birthday. I thought THAT alone was a brilliant idea. But then, she took it a step further and created this little treasure for him to enjoy for years to come:

She used stop motion animation, a technique I've desperately wanted to try. She repositioned the monsters frame by frame and shot nearly 500 photos for this short film.

I'm totally in awe and inspired.

Wondering if I can figure a way to turn thrift store kids sweaters into some kind of animal party favors since I don't knit...and really don't know much about sewing either lol

@allboymama I think recycled sweaters would be perfect! You could cut the sleeves off and stuff them and sew up the ends, glue some eyes on....perfect! Even if you sewed the bottom and tied the top end in a knot as a hat, that would be so cute!
Thanks for reading and commenting!

I love these Monsters! Do you make and sell them? I am doing a monster themed birthday for my sons 1st birthday and would love to give these out instead of party bags!

What a GREAT idea!!! I dont know how to knit but I am thinking about trying to create these in crochet. Your basket of monsters gave me an added idea. I am going to name all my little monsters and then create adoption papers!!! Thank you again for sharing!
