When I was growing up, monsters were scary things that hid in your closet or under your bedâ€”but not any more. Meet the insanely adorable Cotton Monster. Hand made by the wildly creative Jennifer Strunge, each little monster is a wee work of art. These little loveable creatures are made of vintage materials and are so gosh darn snuggly you canâ€™t help but love them. Jennifer says: â€œEach monster is different, and made from recycled clothes and materials, so I never have one set color palette to work fromâ€¦I really let the materials dictate what the monster will turn out to be…so it’s important to me that they are recycled, and in a way, given a new life!
Wolfieâ€™s Auntie Freckle (my lovely pal Jenny) sent him one when he was around three. Dubbed â€œMontyâ€ (because he couldnâ€™t really say â€œMonsterâ€), he has been a fixture on many a flight to grandmamaâ€™s house! Cotton Monsters can double as a pillow and the mouth contains a secret pocket for storing things like sweets or little trains. Wolfie likes to use the arms to tie Monty on like a little back pack when we travel. How cute is that?
Jennifer makes them in all sizes. The larger one’s are a tad pricey but they are so well made and unique. People flip for them, so if you want one snag it ASAP! Her Etsy shop sells out all the time.
