We had a small party for my daughter's fourth birthday. It was really just a glorified playdate, but since she has never had a birthday party - she has seen her brother and sister have birthday parties, but as the third she has gotten jipped. So even though it was really a playdate we called it a party and she was thrilled.
Her one request was to have goodie bags for her friends. Since it was only five girls this request was pretty easy to fulfill. I found some cute monster cups at Michael's and with that a theme was born. There are some really cute monster themed party ideas on line and it would have been fun to go all out, but I resisted the temptation and kept it simple.
With help from her brother and sister Edy drew some crazy monster shapes. I cut the monster shape onto fabric and ironed on pieces for the face. A little stitching around the eyes and mouth, a quick sew around the entire body a little filling and they were done. Super easy and super cute. The kids had so much fun making the monsters, that we have a rather large monster family still living with us. They make great stuffies and are a wonderful way to bring your kids drawing to life.
