Sewing hacks: Gift Card Monsters + Giveaway

August 23rd, 2011

When the nice people at Basic Grey asked me if I was interested in having some fun with their products, and as soon as I spotted these A-freaking-dorable Monster Gift Cards… I think I replied a OHHECKYEAH even before I finished reading the entire email.
Gift Card Monsters

These gift cards holders were screaming to me (one even ingested a fly) to “sew me on to something”.  And funny thing… they said it in robot-voice.
Gift Card Monsters

I thought the monsters cards would be a great “secret pocket” sewn inside a kid’s jacket to hold notes with important or emergency info.  Or keys.   Or money.  Or gum.   Feeding the monster.  Also fun, the monster cards are so great slip-stitched on to the backs of quilts.

Use to put in secret notes - like when your little kiddle goes off to Grandma’s or a sleep-over - and put in a little “I love you” note.

When I give a quilt I’ve made, I usually give instructions like:
- Launder like everyday laundry.
- Do not use fabric softener.
- You better use this quilt and not store it away.  I expect to see stains and wear… signs it’s been loved and used.  Don’t make me come over there and kick your [body-part of choice].  The little monster “pocket” would be perfect to slip the instruction note in to… or just a note, “why yes, this is a quilt made with Kate Spain’s Central Park and Terrain, and backed with my Happy Mochi Yum Yum - and yes… it’s a blog post for another day“.

  305. The fabulous Marie allegedly said:

    I’d feed it the same thing I feed me…CHOCOLATE! Then I would give it to a very special someone. They also look to be the perfect size for stocking stuffers and if that’s true then the ’stuffing’ possibilities are endless! Oooooh wait, I always hide a note on the first day of school for my kids (either in the lunch bag or backpack). You could sneak a monster into their backpacks with a note and maybe a chocolate or two for the first day of school. I could keep going…

    Please pick me! I love your work! Keep it up!

  329. The fabulous Joni Reinhart allegedly said:

    too cute! I would feed these little monsters xxx’s and ooo’s!

  330. The fabulous Lynne allegedly said:

    Oh, heck, I might just wanna sew one in MY jacket. Could come in handy for somethin’ tiny and fun.

  331. The fabulous Gretchen allegedly said:

    Unbelievably cute monsters!!! Perfect for adding to Xmas gift quilts. I would add some Starbucks gift cards. What’s better than some SBux coffee or hot chocolate & wrapping up in a quilt?

  332. The fabulous Nancy allegedly said:

    These are sooooo cute! I love all your designs, Monica. I have taught many classes using your patterns that have appeared in magazines. Never realized til lately that they were all designed by the same person - you! Obviously we have similar tastes since I latch on to every new project of yours that appears! I made 20 of your tiny treat totes for a baby shower - in one morning. Very fitting since I teach a lot of bag classes. Told everyone I was making them each a tote bag as a favor! Can’t wait to make a monster now!


    Thank you for your kind words and excitement over my patterns, Nancy. LOVE THAT! Just wanna make sure you understand that the gift card monsters are not my design or a pattern - and that they’re a product from Basic Grey. One for the Wish I Thought Of That files, for sure! - Monica

  333. The fabulous Janet Klockenga allegedly said:

    I adore the zipper mouths! Would love to know how to make those!

  334. The fabulous Roxanna allegedly said:

    Those are fantastic…love your creativity…I would have the monster eat my candy stash:)

  335. The fabulous Pamela Stormo allegedly said:

    Love the monsters! I want to put them on the kids back packs!

  336. The fabulous Naomi Ruth allegedly said:

    My monsters would be fed a combination of instructions and gift cards.

  337. The fabulous Tracy allegedly said:

    WooHoo Happy dance!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!! xoxo

  338. The fabulous Char Billow allegedly said:

    So VERY excited!!! Thank you, Thank you!!! xxoo
