Summertiiiiiiime… And the livin’ is Beastieeeee!

Summertime Wedding Beasties, by CrawCrafts BeastiesHappy Tuesday, everyone! And look, I’ve some new Beasties for you to meet!

I’m delighted to introduce you to Beach Babe Beastie and her new Beastie hubby, Outdoor Adventure Beastie!
A Closeup of the Happy Couple - CrawCrafts BeastiesThe person who requested these two little monsters wanted them as a wedding gift for a couple who she described as “summer people” – when the sun starts to shine, they’re the first to dash outside to soak up some rays on the beach or seek out adventure in the countryside! So rather than dress their Beasties up in stiff, formal wedding garb, we decided to go for outfits and accessories that would reflect their love of those long, hot summer days.

Ready for the guided tour? Great – ladies first, then!

Then once the sun slips below the horizon, she can pop on a cute floral-print skirt and head out for a relaxed dinner with her Beastie Beloved!
Dressed for Dinner - Beach Babe Beastie, by CrawCrafts BeastiesI also gave her a little tote bag, to hold her sunscreen – she needs to preserve her lovely rose-pink complexion, after all.

Another Big Tall Beastie! CrawCrafts BeastiesWhile I was making these Beasties, I thought it might be a good opportunity to redesign my Beastie backpacks – the new-style ones close with Velcro instead of snaps, and I think they’re a better, more realistic shape and more sturdily constructed.

Ready for the Great Outdoors - CrawCrafts BeastiesAll we need now is a bright sunny day for them to enjoy! But until then, they’ve managed to find a decent substitute…
Hey! That's my Desk! Sunbathing Beasties, by CrawCrafts BeastiesHurry up, summer… I need my desk back!

Hope you’re enjoying less apocalyptic weather where you are – my must-have summer accessory this past week has been my umbrella! What do you keep in your beach bag or backpack?

    1. Thank you, Laura! I had a great time with this lot… I’ve really caught the embroidery bug lately, and there were plenty of opportunities to use it in this project πŸ˜€

  1. Love it!! Your wee beasties are awesome!! I need to keep things for all weather in my backpack too! The weather is so changeable in the Scottish Highlands just now. Beautiful through the day, but by evening torrential rain and wind! I think if beasties decide to take a trip to the Highlands they will need a little bit of everything including a hat and scarf!! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you! It sounds like you’re having the same interesting time of it weather-wise as we are here… our torrential rain storms seem to hit at around 3-4pm, so you must be getting them straight after us πŸ˜† I’ll make sure any Beasties heading to the highlands are properly kitted out! Cheers for your comment, and stay dry πŸ˜€

    1. Hahaha! And I’m probably best not to answer! πŸ˜† In fairness, tan lines aren’t really a problem on this island just now… hopefully these Beasties will be off somewhere sunnier on their honeymoon! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What an enchanting couple …love the Hollywood style sunglasses ~ if they ever get to wear them in this summer we are being subjected to LOL

      1. I very nearly got my sunglasses out …but the moment passed LOL
        Your Beasties perhaps know something we don’t
        PS~ Loving the backpack, and accessories soooo cool πŸ™‚

        1. Thank you! And we actually got a blink of sunshine yesterday evening, so maybe the Beasties did have the right idea after all… keep those sunglasses handy!

      1. I would have loads of fun too. I’m eyeing up some toys to play with at the moment. I bought my friend’s daughter some doll accessories and I want them for myself!!

  3. Oh my, they are so much fun! I love all the accessories! … very inspiring, too! I’m trying my hands on a glass of beer right now. πŸ˜€

      1. I crocheted it … now the monsters are drunk and burping …. pffft. Will upload a picture as soon as I can get that beer back. πŸ™‚

  4. I’d like to order one human-size, Beastie-style bikini (looks great for covering the thighs). Oh, and could you toss in one of those pink drinks and a sandwich as well? These are too cute! I can’t imagine where you find the patience to make all the little details that make them so unique. I’d be tossing the felt across the room after the first pair of sunglasses.

    1. Yes, Beastie ladies do know how to make the most of what most humans would consider an unfortunate body shape. But I think this is because they are clever enough to recognise Barbie and her leggy friends for the mutated, unrealistic freaks they are. As for where I get the patience to construct teeny accessories, I reckon it comes from working in retail for years. My powers of patience border on the superhuman!
