A bespoke Beastie family of mum, dad and baby, commissioned as a gift to celebrate the new arrival! The parents were modelled on their human counterparts…
… With clothes inspired by some of their of their favourite outfits and interests. Dad is a Manchester United supporter who likes Oasis…
While New Mama Beastie lives in checked shirts and her favourite bomber jacket.
She’s also in charge of the most important task… Holding on to the baby!
Baby Beastie is kept safe and snug in a toasty blanket, handknitted from soft merino wool. But my favourite part of this project is the record and sleeve – a Beastified special-edition vinyl of Oasis’s album “Definitely Maybeast” 😉
