Well hello there, Beastie friends! After Paddy’s totally genuine high-speed adventure last week, we’re shifting down a gear to a more sedate pace, and meeting a new Beastie. Hey, Birthday Girl Beastie!
This Beastie was requested by a thoughtful mum, who wanted to help her daughter to celebrate a very special birthday in the Beastie-est way possible. I mean, you don’t turn 10 every day, do you?
So, this was the design brief – a Beastie with long, dark brown hair just like her new human buddy’s…
Done! And we needed to include her favourite colours, too – blue, mint green, white and peach.
I managed to tick most of those boxes with this stripey handknitted sweater…
… Complete with an appliquéd felt “O” for the birthday girl’s initial!
Now, how can we get some peach in there? I know… What about a little felt bag, so she can gather up souvenirs (and, more importantly, birthday cake) on her adventures?
Perfect! I even picked up some rose-gold-coloured jewellery findings to better match the warm peachy tones of the bag and its ribbon strap. Here you go, little Beastie lady!
That looks great! Your outfit is complete.
And now I reckon you’d better get going… You wouldn’t want to miss the party, would you?
So, thanks to Dee for requesting this sweet little girl monster! And if you know someone who’s about to celebrate a special birthday too, why not send a personalised Beastie to help with the festivities?

We’ll be back next Tuesday with more Beastie shenanigans, so be sure to join us then!
See you next week!
