Sew, Mama, Sew! tips us off to Craft Schmaft’s Tag Monster project, a handmade stuffy who was created because the stitcher’s son is obsessed with tags and labels.

“I created a little softie for my baby boy, Oscar, earlier this year called the Tag Monster. Oscar is obsessed with labels. You know those little tags that come on the side of clothing and products? Yep, he can’t get enough of them. Forget the toy with it’s flashing lights, noisy rattle, shiny fabric and bright colours, he wants the tag. So I came up with the idea of a tag monster. Following a few requests I’ve made the idea into a pattern and posted it on my blog.”
