Monster Mediums: Yarn

A couple more monsters... 

This is Hannah and she is a Veterinarian.  She has always loved animals and now as an adult, she get's to work with them all day long. She will come to visit animals on the farm and at the circus.  She has a business where people bring their animals to her as well. She has some pets at home too, two cats and a dog named Nipper (don't get to close to him, he nips) and a bird named Petey.  Hannah also has a large vegetable garden in the backyard where she grows tomatoes, zucchini, peppers and sweet corn.  She also grows some beautiful flowers, just because she loves to stop in smell them right away in the morning.  

Can you guess what medium Hannah is?

This is how Hannah was made...

I cut a foam ball in half and cover it with glue.  I wrapped the yarn around and around the ball.  I did the same thing for Hannah's face.  I placed a knot at the end of the yarn and glued it down.  I then wrapped the yarn around and around using glue to keep it in place.

I tried to use a lot of different textures for the yarn.  It makes you want to look at it really close.  I love fibers for this reason.

 I wrapped cardboard for the teeth and placed them and the mouth on with glue as well.

Finally, I cut long stands and placed them on the board and gave it a little braid.  She is upside down because Hannah's a little silly. If you look really close at the bottom of this picture below you will see some preplanning for my monsters.  Even Mrs. Hahn has to pre plan her projects!
