A New Kind of Beastie!

Big Tall Rugby Beastie, by CrawCrafts Beasties
Rugby players look normal enough when they’re on the pitch, or standing with other rugby players. It’s only when you see them among the regular, non-rugby-playing public that you realise that they’re often around a foot taller than the rest of us, and built like tanks.

So when I was asked to make a rugby-playing Beastie buddy for a friend’s boyfriend, I was hardly surprised when she requested that her Beastie be a little taller than usual. And that’s how a new superbreed of Beastie was born… the Big Tall Rugby Beastie! Here he is posing with Explorer Beastie, to give you an idea of his superior stature.

I wanted to add in a few personal touches to make this monster extra special, too. Big Tall Rugby Beastie’s shirt is a Beastie-sized version of the one his new human team mates wear…

His new buddy also always wears mismatched socks when he plays, so…

And I couldn’t let him leave Beastie Towers without an official Ireland rugby ball! Once he had that, he was fully kitted out, and ready to hit the pitch… Taaaaa daaaaaa!

    1. Thank you! Big Tall Rugby Beastie was a lot of fun to do, loads of embroidery! I’ve really got into embroidering since I watched a documentary on the Bayeux Tapestry while ago πŸ™‚

      1. I find embroidery so difficult to learn… Even if I have a nice book at mine and I think there are a lot of tutorials on Youtube, I still have troubles with! Your embroidery is so fresh and modern,I like it a lot!!

        1. …..ok….. I tried to do that but unsuccessfully….. πŸ˜› So I suppose its a matter of skill, practice and lot of patiente πŸ™‚ Kudos to you ❀ ❀ ❀

  1. I knew rugby types were mahoosive and yours is no exception LOL
    what a cool guy you have crafted, a superstar is born πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks! According to my sources he has already hijacked his new buddy’s Facebook profile, so he shouldn’t be far from realising his dream of playing for his local First XV. Watch this space!
