These little guys make us smile. Crocheting is a talent that has been passed down through the generations in Tricia Jutras' family. She learned how to crochet when she was just 6 years old. It all started there, and continued right through her college years when she made a series of crocheted monsters for her senior thesis at Parsons School of Design in 2005!
Tricia told us, "I always made the monsters for fun but would really love to give them more exposure--that is why I started Monster Squishie... I have never done any sort of flea market or other type of fair and would love the opportunity to be a part of the Flea!" Done, Tricia! Each of her monsters has a character all its own with a vintage crocheted flair, although they are made with all new materials. One of Tricia's stuffed monsters is even based on a vintage robot.
See Monster Squishie at both Holiday Fleas on December 7th & 14th!
