The first one is made for a "red head" so I gave her red hair in the form of i-cord sticking out of the top of her head. How cute and fun was that. It sealed up the top just as snugly as any bind-off would and it's adorable. No seaming either. I just transferred 4 stitches at at time to a double point needle and made a short i-cord that I bound off.
By the way, this is the first i-cord I've ever made and I have to say that not only was it deceptively easy, it looks pretty cool, and like turning the heel of a sock, is a bit of magic. I want to toy around with the process and see if I can get it to curl a little...
I'm not going to show the entire monster finished until I have the set, the person who has ordered it has given them to her friends, and she has given me permission...but I don't think little bits and pieces of the monsters will give away too much. So, here is the first monster body with her bright red hair!
I think I love her, btw!
