I just found this website, and I am so in love! Cotton Monsters are made by Jennifer Strunge, and are really inspiring. I love her use of patterns, and the way she creates mouths complete with a gumline! She has a shop on her site but all the monsters are currently sold out. (not surprised!) Check out her blog too, I havent read it through yet, but there is a picture of her and a giant stuffed octopus that is definitely worth checking out.
