Light Refreshments at Beastie Towers!

Hooray! If it’s Tuesday, it must be New Beastie Day! Here are a couple of the other new additions to the Beastie Towers family who joined us at our market last Saturday

First up… Caff-Fiend Beastie!
Caff-Fiend Beastie, by CrawCrafts BeastiesOh, I do love making Beasties with teeny mugs of hot drinks! And as someone with their feet firmly planted in the tea drinkers’ camp, all of my cup-toting Beasties up to now have been clutching a nice, milky brew. However, I have heard rumblings that some people -SHOCK – prefer coffee! And it turns out that this applies to Beasties too. So, Caff-Fiend Beastie has a big ol’ yellow mug full of rich, strong Americano…
Anyone for Coffee? CrawCrafts Beasties …Although I suspect this might not be his first of the day! Check out his hair – is he perhaps a little frazzled?
One Too Many Coffees? CrawCrafts BeastiesMaybe we’d better make him order a chamomile tea next time around!

Of course, our “Drinks Beasties” feature today wouldn’t be complete without a Pint Beastie…
A New Red Ale Beastie, by CrawCrafts BeastiesI equipped this BarrΓ³g* Beastie (those are the ones made out of 100% Irish wool) with one of my new-style pints, to see if the method worked with other types of beer… How about a nice red ale?

[*“BarrΓ³g” is the Irish word for “hug”, by the way!]
Red Ale Beastie's Pint, by CrawCrafts BeastiesLooking good – I’d almost drink this myself! SlΓ‘inte!

Have you a favourite tipple that you’d like to see recreated in Beastie-size? Let me know in the comments!

  1. These beasties are great! I’m a tea drinker myself and can’t stand coffee. I can’t even drink it just to be polite. I’m curious as to how you might beastify a glass of wine. That’s my favourite grown up beverage.

  2. These are amazing! I really love how neat your beverages are! My wife and I did soft-craft monsters for years, and we never, EVER thought about mugs! This is brilliant work! I will stop gushing now. (but these are neat!)

    1. Oh no, don’t let me stop you! πŸ˜€ It’s so cool to meet fellow monster-makers (even if you’ve hung up your craft tools) and I’d love to see your monsters sometime if you still have pictures! Thanks for stopping by πŸ˜€

  3. I love caff-fiend beasties hair! Very appropriate. I think it could also be a mug of tea if you take it plain…I’m also a tea person but don’t mind an occasional coffee. I’m happy the pumpkin spice latte season is starting up. Mmmmm. Maybe you need a latte beastie, or hot chocolate and whipped cream beastie? Yum!

  4. I’m definitely into coffee and just LOVE caff-ied beastie and his electrified hair. The idea of whipped cream beastie also appeals to me … yummy! And the cream could have sprinkles, too. Can you tell I’m in separate need of something sweet. πŸ˜€

    1. Hahaha, is it nearly coffee break time already?! I’d be tempted to add some marshmallows too… I think I should test out a few hot chocolate variations today to help me decide! It’s important to approach these things scientifically πŸ˜€
