And Now For Something Completely Different…

Cosy Cuppa Beastie and Bobble Hat Beastie

In my last post, I introduced Dog Lover Beastie… my biggest, scariest and most challenging Beastie project to date! And although most of my special Beastie requests involve a certain amount of clich├ęd activities such as thinking outside the box, diversifying my skill set and exploring the potential of my raw materials, sometimes they’re as simple as, “Hey, I like that Beastie… but can I have them in these colours?”
So, Cosy Cuppa Beastie (on the left) was made for a friend at work who fell in love with Winter Warmer Beastie… but unfortunately after he’d moved to Canada.

Still, that meant that I was able to make her a Beastie of her very own, with sunny yellow stripes and a big ol’ cup of tea!

Meanwhile, my second monster request might look more than a little familiar to anyone who’s been following this blog for a while…

Explorer Beastie caught someone’s eye on Facebook, and although no two Beasties are exactly alike, sometimes there might be slight family resemblances! Bobble Hat Beastie was happy to leave Beastie Towers in search of adventure… Looks like these two monsters might share more than just the same colour scheme!

Stay tuned for more new Beasties over the next couple of weeks!

Success!

Sold Out

Oh wow! I went to the Craft Fair hoping to introduce my Beasties to the wider world and maybe make a sale or two… but I never thought I’d re-home them all! And I had a great time doing it, too.

Here are a couple more of the Beasties who set off on new adventures this weekend:

Wintery Beastie

This Beastie with his toasty bobble hat and scarf combo was bought by a friend of mine who plans to send him to her niece and nephew in Japan! That’s probably the furthest any of them have ever travelled…

Beastie Mum & Baby

Rumour has it that this Beastie family will be a surprise gift for a mum-to-be…

Beastie in a Fez

…And my fez-wearing Beastie found a happy home with someone who decided, after much deliberation, that this was his favourite.
