I can finally unveil a project which I have been working on for sometime and the results of which I have totally fallen in love with. These little chaps were created as Christmas presents for Mr Monster’s mum Linda, and her two sisters Lesley and Angela.
As little girls growing up, their vibrant imaginations dreamt up a community of creatures who lived at the bottom of the garden called, the Burbalies. They have remembered these little critters long into adulthood so Mr Monster set me the challenge of bringing them to life. He managed to subtly weedle out of his mum what they might have looked like, so we took the basics and added a few of our own ideas to try and get the feel of these mystical monsters who lived in the veg patch!
For Linda, her new friend lives in the strawberry bush and is great friends with the local snails:
Lesley’s little chum has made his home amongst these pretty purple flowers which my grandmother always used to call ‘Dancing Dollies’. His best friend is a little green caterpillar:
And for Angela, I found this little chap in amongst the flowerbeds playing with the butterflies:
I have enjoyed this project massively and there is a lot of love sewn into these little creations. It’s been killing me that I haven’t been able to blog them until now! Merry Christmas everybody!
