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

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long
    as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog site is
    in the very same niche as yours and my users would certainly benefit
    from a lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you.
    Appreciate it!

    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

    I used to be recommended this web site by means of my cousin.
    I’m now not positive whether or not this publish is written by way of him as no one else recognise such certain about my problem. You are incredible! Thank you!

    Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work?
    I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on
    a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    Hi, I am new to sewing and hoping to give this a go. Could you talk me through how to do the mouth? Is it a piece of felt and how is it best to attach it on? Thank you!

    Tried one as well! I had some problems with those tiny curves, but it’s been quite good to practice my sewing skills :-)
    Here’s a picture:

    Thanks a lot for the great tutorial! :-)

    The items can also be selected to correspond to the theme of the baby shower.
    First and the most important thing is to have an idea about the water slide set up from the party rental companies and it should have proper drainage system in your lawn
    that will allow the water to run smoothly. The forts that most of
    the parents choose are also equipped with the optional
    Built-in Picnic Table for visiting and snacks, tea, coffee, shakes,

    Ja, die sind wirklich süß und durften jetzt auch bei uns Einzug halten.
    Wer gucken mag, kann dies hier gerne tun :)

    Danke für die tolle Anleitung und vor allem die Idee :)

    Thank you for this tutorial!
    I opted to make an owl instead. So far, my sewing skills need still some polishing, but the result of this project is quite cute IMHO.

Das zweite spende ich an Viel Farbe im Grau, eine Organisation, die es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht hat, kranken Kindern und deren Familien den Krankenhausalltag zu verschönern.
