Take your child to work - monster studio style

Hi, I'm Gauge!


Today was take your child to work day. I worked in the monster studio with my mom.

First we had hot cocoa and checked emails and messages on social media.
Then I picked out fabric and cut out a stuffed monster.

First I sewed the limbs.
Ta-da!
Then I cut out face pieces....
And sewed them down.
This is the face I made.
And then we pinned all the pieces together.
Then I sewed all the pieces together.
Then I stuffed him, and mom sewed him shut.
I am done. What do you think?
Then I wrote this blog post!
All the photos (save the ones I made of him working), and this post itself, were all created by my son, Gauge, who is 7!

  14. Awesome, Gauge! I have a boy who's a year older than you, and he loves to help me in the studio. It's awesome for a mom when her children are interested in her craft. Do you like other crafts besides making monsters?
