Tutorial: How to sew a RevoluzZzionary Monster / Wie man ein revoluzZzionäres Monster näht

I got such an amazing positive feedback from many, many people concerning my monsters that I decided to give all my blog readers a little gift: A tutorial to make your own RevoluzZzionary Monster. It’s a simple one and even if you are a beginner you should be able to do it.


If you have any questions while you are making the monster – just contact me. And you can make the monster with a very simple sewing machine – you only need a simple stitch and a zigzag stitch.

And the cute little monster I made during this tutorial – its name is Ninni :-) – will be drawn by lot (my daughter and I like the RevoluzZza ribbon „lottery“ that much that we want to have another „RevoluzZza lottery“ :-)). Just leave a comment and on Friday my cute little daughter will draw by lot who will give the little beast a new home. Everybody can join – no matter where you live.

OK, let’s get started!

1. Download the pattern, print it and cut out the pattern. I chose to use different fabrics for the front and the back of the monster:


2. Pin the pattern on the fabrics and cut it out:


3. Serge the part which you will use later to close the monster with a blind stitch:


4. Cut out the felt eyes and sew them on the front fabric:


5. Now fix the felt tooth (or teeth if you want to give your monster not just one tooth) while you sew the mouth with a narrow zigzag stitch:


6. After you fixed the inner eyes you simply stitch a cross on the eyes by hand:


7. Stitch the felt heart on the monster front:


8. Now pin the front and the back of the monster with needles and sew the two parts together – but leave the part open which you will use to turn the monster inside out (the part you serged before):


9. Now you have to cut some parts of the monster: the ears, over the little arms and between the legs (like shown on the pattern you downloaded). Serge the monster with a zigzag stitch – narrower on the parts you cut:


10. … and this is the best moment when you create monsters and any kind of dolls and stuffed things: When you turn it inside out and see the final creature. Still a very flat monster – but already a monster :-)


11. It’s almost finished. Now we only have to stuff the little beast with doll wadding and close it with a blind stitch by hand:


That’s it!


I hope you like the tutorial – and of course I’m a very curious person: So please leave a link here where I can find a pic from the monster you created using this tutorial. Or post it at my brandnew flickr-group: RevoluzZza group at flickr

    Hallo ist das monster nur für den persöhnlichen gebrauch? Da ich bei Dawanda mehrere gefunden habe die dieser anleitung sehr ähnlich sind.


  6. Chrissie 20. Januar 2011 at 00:14 #

    Die Anleitung ist zwar schon was älter, aber ich habe sie erst Ende letzten Jahres entdeckt und direkt ein kleines Monster danach erschaffen :) Sehr schöne Anleitung und das Geschenk ist super angekommen. Hoffe du freust dich auch fast 2 Jahre später noch über ein Bild ;)
    Hoffe das mit dem Link klappt:

    erstmal vielen Dank für die tolle Monsterchen-Vorlage :D
    Sie sind wirklich revoluzzzionär herzig ;)

    Allerdings habe ich deine Vorlage mal ein wenig zweckentfremdet – hoffe, das war okay – und habe sie mit meiner Tochter gebastelt statt genäht.

    Vielleicht magst du ja dennoch gucken:

    Nähen werde ich aber auf jeden Fall mindestens 2 Monsterchen, für meine beiden Mädels :D

    Liebe Grüße,
    Frau Zauberkäfer

  14. a {t-shirt} monster mood board « the remakery - 5. Juli 2012

    […] blog.revoluzzza.com At yesterday’s remakery sewing club, the girls and I tackled t-shirt monsters! I decided to collate a mood board to introduce the concept and I took in some of my own children’s monster softies. I wanted the girls to design their own creatures on paper first ( we used old brown paper which gave the process a realistic ‘designer’ feel). The shapes were varied, and, by its’ very nature the project lent itself to simple outlines. Fabric choice was next! Lots of old t-shirts were harmed in the making of these monsters! I was really pleased to see the girls give their selections a lot of thought and they all decided to have a different colour for front and back. Lots of lovely chat took place; I was particularly pleased that they related the making of the creatures to the making of their pin-cushions. ‘This is like the pin-cushions, we will sew the pieces together, turn them inside out and stuff them.’ Next week we will begin the process of adding features and in so doing will learn how to sew buttons, add patches and generally give each creature lots of personality! etsy.com This image, above, is amazing! I have spent a long time looking at it and spotting something new! The simplicity is totally deceptive…this must have been quite a process, selecting, disgarding until the creator was finally happy. Denise Litchfield is the artist. […]
