So far 2012 has been a lean year monster-wise, what with getting my new sewing machine and all but finally, I can introduce you to a new member of the monster clan.
Jeremiah was raised in the circus by his bearded-lady mother and lion-tamer father, but turned his back on entertainment to become an academic. He just fell short of a place at Cambridge but did manage to secure a place at the south-west college of baked goods, studying modern biscuit history. His proudest moment should have been his appearance on Mastermind with a specialist subject of European biscuit economics from 1900 to the present day, but he fell apart after stumbling over the question “Are Jaffa cakes a cake or a biscuit?”. He has since redeemed himself with a landmark win on ‘Million Pound Drop’.
I made Jeremiah as part of my babygro keepsake project. I’m exhibiting at the Little Monsters baby show in Bristol in March so am putting together some samples to try to show potential customers what I can do with their old, cherished baby clothes. Plenty more where he came from so stay tuned!
