And the Winner is – Part 2

13 Apr

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.

If you would like one of your own, why not drop me a line through my contact page.

I’ve had a productive old day today in my craft room preparing for the Little Monsters baby show in a couple of weeks time. Babygro monsters are largely completed, but I wanted to get together another of my mother and baby creations to promote on the day too. I worked with ‘cute’ as my buzzword and I reckon I pulled that off!

We’ve had Mr Monster’s photography kit out to do some shots to use on our wedding invitations, so cutesy and I had a little photo shoot of our own, what do you think?
