Button Monsters - Crochet

Good morning,

Here's a fun little project to do with the kids on a snow or any other day you can spend quality time with them.

You can help teach new crocheters to make this quick project, or if they aren't ready to make the monster itself, they'll be delighted to help with the eyes and to wear the finished product.

These Button Monsters are NOT for children under three years of age.

Have fun with these!

Lois
