Here are some monsters I made ages ago, for Sara. I think it was a wedding present, and the couple are called Anita and Peter, if I'm remembering right!
Complicated stripy top/zebra print scarf combo. She is drinking a glass of wine that I clumsily made out of felt.
I think Peter was supposed to look like a vampire monkey, hence the teeth and ears. Check out the beaded bubbles in the pint, I am so inventive!!! Maybe they're droplets of condensation since they're on the outside of the glass.
Lookee here, it's Sarah and Bondy's wedding monsters.
Sarah is an old fine art buddy of mine from back in the Hudd. I was excited to be part of her happy day in a most minor way.
He's got a star tattoo. I am so OBSERVANT!!! :)
Okay this is Kate and Matt, I made them for Ana. I think these might have been a wedding present too.
Apparently they both like to wear onesies, so the monsters are in onesies too. Here I decided to attempt crocheting the pint instead. Why my monsters drink so much, I'll never know.
Kate is from Florida and a fan of the Gators (American football! exotic). This is what their logo looks like.
This is my effort.
Okay NEXT. I didn't do anything for months and have just had a flurry of activity before Christmas. First up this is Ann.
She was cute and fun to make. All sparkly shoes and nice colours. Check out her butterfly jumper.
Next up I made the whole family of Danielle, who runs Rubbish Revamped in Chorlton and makes loads of crafty bits out of recycled materials. This is Danielle and her husband Bruce, a runner and Leeds United fan.
Here is a photo Danielle sent me of her and Bruce with their Monc-sters
Their two sons Sam and Joe both support Man City so I gave them City shirts with their names on the back. Sam loves cooking and Joe is into his Blackberry.
Added a plastic blackberry bead to make the Blackberry more Blackberryish, but wondered afterwards if it might actually be a bunch of grapes? Never mind.
And this is one of their cats. I made two, but didn't take proper photos because I'm an idiot.
This is turning into such a mammoth post, I had no idea I had so many. Anyhoo last ones for now - this is Trudie and her dog Marty.
These ones were ace fun, I just love doing people with red hair. Do you like my new backdrop, it is an old A-Z of Birmingham.
Phew, well that'll do for now, I'm tired and monstered out. Hope you liked them. I got them all done to deadline! I'm SO PRODUCTIVE etc.
Well goodbye and happy new year again
bye, I love you xxx
