So, a little while ago, at the Little Monsters Baby and Toddler Show, I ran a competition for mums and dads to win the chance to commission a babygro keepsake monster. The winner was the lovely Marcia who sent me a teeny tiny little babygro which both her beautiful babies wore as newborns. She wanted a mummy monster with two baby monsters, a boy and a girl, to reflect this…and so I got to work.
I chose to use towelling for the mummy monster to stick with the newborn theme, but it turns out that it is just the WORST material to work with! It pulls really easily and little bits come off it like crazy. I spent the time I was working on the project looking like a big hairy monster myself!
Anyway, it was all worth it in the end and I really hope Marcia and her bambino’s like it and will be able to cherish it forever, as is the intention with my keepsake monsters.
