Another Monster Big Day!

Wedding Beasties, by CrawCrafts BeastiesHey there Beastiebuddies! It’s Tuesday again, so that means I am duty bound to introduce you to the newest arrivals here at Beastie Towers – and since wedding season is still in full swing, it looks like you’re actually getting TWO new Beasties for the price of one. Don’t say I ain’t good to ya!

Ooookaaay, where shall we start? Aha! Here comes the bride now.
Here Comes the Beastie Bride! CrawCrafts BeastiesIsn’t she pretty? I loved styling her beautiful long hair!

Her dress is an understated yet elegant ivory satin, with a fitted wool bodice and net petticoats, and she has a veil to match… topped with pale yellow roses, to complement her golden skintone.
Bride Beastie's Veil, by CrawCrafts BeastiesThis Beastie bride’s human counterpart is a big fan of board games, so I also made her a personalised miniature Scrabble tile necklace to complete her outfit!

Beastie Carcassonne Board Game, by CrawCrafts BeastiesIt’s a “Carcassonne” board game, shrunk to Beastie size! Apparently this is the human bride’s very favourite board game, and I thought Beastie Bride would like one too.
Carcassonne Close-Up - CrawCrafts BeastiesI used felt as the background, then appliquΓ©d hand-cut pieces of felt on for the larger blocks of colour, before adding in the details and lettering with hand-stitched embroidery. The finished box measures just 5x6cm!

But let’s not forget about the groom! He’s looking dapper in a navy felt and wool suit, and his golden yellow tie is a thoughtful nod to his lady-wife’s complexion.

The Happy Couple - CrawCrafts BeastiesWe’ll be back on Friday, when we’ll be checking up on Paddy and Plunkett. Let’s hope the sun is still shining on them, wherever they are…

Until then, have a super week!

    1. Yaaaay! Thanks Antonello… Although I am starting to wonder if I’m the only person on earth who hadn’t heard of Carcassonne before! It looks like a fun game, I’ll have to try it sometime! πŸ˜€

  2. O. M. G!!! Your entire torso must be stuffed with patience to create these little monsters (the rest of you is stuffed with talent…obviously). Which makes me wonder where your beer goes when you drink it. Hmmm…..

    1. Heeheehee! It’s a delicate balancing act, certainly… Although I suspect that beer makes room for itself by pushing out patience and talent πŸ˜† Thanks for your comment… You’re making me blush here!

  3. I adore these! As an avid board game player myself, I am hugely impressed with the detail on the Carcassonne box. You are not only more dexterous than I am but clearly have better eyesight. I love reading about all of the little details you incorporate to personalise each Beastie. You are making wonderful, unique, heirloom pieces.

    1. Oh wow, thank you for your kind words! Although we’ll have to see how long my eyesight stands up to the challenges I’ve been setting it lately! It’s good to hear that my felt Carcassonne box stands up to scrutiny from an expert player too. Thanks again for your lovely comment πŸ˜€
