It’s not just Beastiemaking that’s been keeping my hands busy these last few weeks! Regular hangers-out on the BeastieBlog may already have encountered my little plushie beans… if not, you can catch up here!
Normally, these beans are small enough to sit comfortably in your open hand. But then I got a request on Etsy for something bigger. A whole lot bigger! So I set about supersizing my regular beanie template…
The upscaling process meant I needed to stitch the features a little bolder…
And my customer asked if I could personalise the bean with the recipient’s name – great idea!
And who will be getting to cuddle up to this soft, squishy beanie friend?
Why, this happy little lady of course! Here they are celebrating her 3-month birthday together… hope you had a great day, Clara! Also, thanks to your mum for sending me this lovely photo and allowing me to share it with the world!
As for me, I think I’ll definitely be growing more giant-size beans in the Beastie Towers garden this autumn!
