If it’s Tuesday, it must be… NEW BEASTIE DAY!

And, nearly halfway into February, we’re finally meeting the last of the pre-Christmas Beasties. Let’s have a monster welcome for… Doctor Who Beastie!

This little woolly Time Lord’s outfit is inspired by the 11th Doctor, played by Matt Smith in series 5-7 of the long-running BBC science fiction show “Doctor Who”. As you can see, he’s really made the character’s trademark hairstyle and dapper tweed jacket (complete with felt elbow patches) his own!

And underneath the jacket, he’s sporting an elegant red bow tie and matching braces!

Then, to help him fight intergalactic nasties across space and time, I equipped him with a felt Sonic Screwdriver…

I hope you can see enough of the details in the photos… Unfortunately daylight waThe Tardis, Finished Just in Time! CrawCrafts Beastiess in short supply in these parts around Christmas time!

The box has a little felt lamp on its roof, hand-appliqu├ęd panels and embroidered windows on all four sides, and the all important “Police Box” sign hand-embroidered above the door!

With so many details to complete, it was a real race to the finishing line to get this very important commission done in time for Christmas!

But Christmas Eve dawned, and the Tardis was finally ready to carry the Beastie Doctor off to his new home…

…And left me singing the “Doctor Who” theme tune for the next three days straight! Perhaps you’d like to join in?

Right, that should keep you all entertained until Friday, when we’ll be back with news from Paddy and Plunkett! Then next Tuesday I’ll be showing you some behind-the-scenes stuff from within the walls of Beastie Towers… expect to see those elusive, long-promised notebook extracts at last, plus some sketches, many half-baked ideas and a whole lot of crafting gear! See you then…
