A monster-pouch for his recorder





My little one started recorder lessons this year...so he wanted a little bag of something for his recorder.


Out came the crochet hook, 'cos the sewing maching is 22 years old and SO in need of a service it's not even funny.  Acrylic yarn it was going to be (out came the Elle Pure Gold), in red, to be visible for those mornings when you're running around, frantically looking for the recorder.


It took about 20 stitches or so, and then rows and rows of SC, until the strip was twice and a bit longer than the recorder.  




Sewed it together...





 ...glued on two wonky eyes and a split tongue, and hey...




 ...there's your monster :-)



(and now Big Brother wants a pouch for his drum sticks...I am searching  for some grey)
