Every new Beastie starts with a simple email.
When someone gets in touch with me to ask about a personalised monster, the first step is to find out a bit about the person who’s going to be getting a new Beastie friend – their hobbies and interests, their favourite outfits, perhaps what they do for a living. A photo is also really helpful for getting the likeness just right, too!
Then I get sketching!
A few simple pencil scribbles help me to get my ideas in order. Then I scan the outlines into the computer, tidy them up and add some colour.
Is it right?
When the sketches are ready, it’s time to run them past the customer to make sure everything is how they imagined. If it isn’t, not to worry – this is the ideal time to tweak those details and make sure everybody’s happy before I start knitting.
Let the Beastification begin!
Knitting, cutting, stitching, felting… Beasties take a while, so make sure you order yours in good time if you need them by a certain date!
Good to go…
Finished! Your Beastie is carefully wrapped and packed, ready to travel. Once payment is received, they’ll start their journey to their new home!
