wild thing

My wild thing turns 12 next week and we're having a party! Here is her invitation.

We started with this wonderful illustration out of the book, Where the Wild Things Are, by the marvelous Maurice Sendak. We are over the moon excited about the movie coming out next week and decided to build her party around it.

Savvy Sophie plopped Sadie's head right on top of this monster with a a few short mouse clicks. Aren't kids so smart?

I picked some great threads and oil pastels and started stitching. I love sewing paper.

I wanted the border to resemble jagged monster teeth.
With Cray-Pas oil pastel, I added some color to Sadie's cheeks and lips.

Let the wild rumpus start!


  1. I love it! (And am also equally excited about the movie!)

  2. How fun is that. The stitching on the paper looks amazing. What are those red dots? Did you sew each one? WOW. I know it is going to be a blast. Fun fun.


  3. This is so great. I love it. It all looks very cool and the party will be a blast. Sue

  4. I love stitching paper, too. The cards look fantastic!
