Well hello there everyone! This week I’m finally getting around to sharing a sort-of-commission that was requested by long-term BeastieBuddy Jan, who blogs at The Snail of Happiness. She already opened her home to a pair of Beasties last summer…
… But following a Grand Slam victory for Wales in the Six Nations rugby tournament earlier this year, she thought a special celebratory addition to their wardrobe was in order. So I found a willing Beastie model to help me get the sizing right, and TA-DAAAAAAH!
One Beastified Wales Rugby jersey!
We decided to go for a classic short-sleeved shirt, with a crisp white felt collar. Then I embroidered the Welsh Rugby Union logo on one side…
… And added an appliquéd number 8 on the back!
The significance of the number 8 is still a mystery to us here at Beastie Towers, but it’s clearly got some sort of special meaning to Jon Beastie and his human counterpart. I’m keeping an eye on their blog in case an explanation is forthcoming!
And here is the jersey, being expertly modelled by Jon Beastie himself! Looking good, sir!

(Plus I was able to heave a sigh of relief that it fitted!)
Any other sports-loving Beasties out there? Be sure to tell us all about your monster fan moments in the comments below!
And we’ll be back next week with some late spring shenanigans from Paddy and Plunkett… Hope to catch you then!
