My Beloved Monsters and Me

My name is Helen, and I like to make monsters. I can trace my fondness for weird and wonderful creatures back to the very first time I saw “The Muppet Show” as a child, and after I learned to sew, it wasn’t long before I was bringing my imaginary friends into the real world with the help of needles, felt and yarn.

But times change, and I moved on to more “grown-up” projects. Then one day, I started to knit a pair of handwarmers, ran out of yarn and decided to improvise a pattern for a little monster instead. And so Beasties were born! Since then, I’ve made them in all shapes and sizes, and they’ve really taken on a life of their own!

Every Beastie is totally handmade and completely unique, with their own individual combination of colours, expressions and exclusive accessories. I knit with high-quality natural fibre yarns, and each Beastie’s special features are lovingly hand stitched. All Beasties leave home with an official Beastie passport and personal ID number too, so that you will know where yours fits in this ever-expanding monster family.

    Owner, Creator

    I'm lucky to come from a crafty background, and I've been making things for as long as I can remember. I've tried everything from basketmaking to weaving, but knitting is the craft I keep coming back to - and the one I have the most fun with.

  • Explorer Beastie

    Marketing Executive

    I'm a monster with a passion for travel and trying new things. I regularly share my adventures on Facebook and through our website (www.crawcraftsbeasties.com) to show humans what great companions us Beasties can be.

Returns and exchanges
I'd love for all my Beasties to go to good homes, so if for any reason you're not happy with yours, please return them to me in resaleable condition within 14 days of receipt. I'll offer either refund or exchange for another item in my Etsy store, which will be payable as soon as the Beastie reaches me safely.
In the case of bespoke Beastie commissions, exchanges and refunds will be at my discretion, and will depend on how personalised the Beastie is.
I offer a FREE Beastie Hospital Service for any Beasties who become damaged or suffer a little wear and tear on their adventures. Beastie owners need only pay for postage to send their injured monster to me, and I'll handle the rest! Please PM or email me before posting your woolly little buddy to ensure they don't get lost on the way.
Payment
I'm happy to accept payments by PayPal, credit card or Etsy gift card, but unfortunately I am currently unable to process bank transfers, bank drafts or cheques. Your Beastie will start their journey to you once I receive confirmation that payment has gone through successfully. In case of cancellation, please try to notify me as soon as possible - although my listings state a processing time of 1-2 business days, I do aim to ship orders promptly!
Shipping
All the shipping prices quoted in my listings are for standard post using An Post, Ireland's national postal service. If you would prefer to have your Beastie sent registered post or using a courier service, please contact me directly and I'll do my best to accommodate your request.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to do commissions, so please feel free to contact me to arrange a personalised Beastie order! The average turnaround time on a Beastie commission is around 2-3 weeks, but this may vary depending on the time of year. For every commission, I'll prepare some sketches and confirm colour and feature options before I so much as cast on a stitch, to make sure you're 100% happy with your finished Beastie!
