Koala.....

Has it really been over a week since I last posted? Wow, the time flies and life is getting busier as we get closer to Christmas isn't it? I have begun my Christmas shopping and sewing. I have actually had a few gifts hiding in my cupboard for months! I have bought a lot from Etsy this year - previous years I have made EVERYTHING and this year I decided I was NOT going to be so stupid!!!!!
I also have been getting ready for the 'Buninyong (Christmas) Makers Market' which is on the 4th of December.  If you are free please come by and say hello!
 This little Koala is my latest creation, which went for a test run this morning.
 I have to send presents to a few overseas kids this year - how hard is it to buy a Koala that is not made in China? .......VERY. So here is my home grown, locally made, little bush baby.
Made with lots of love, of course!!!
I will have some of these available in my Etsy shop soon and at the market.

What a sweet koala! It is so hard to find a koala not made in China, I recently made my own to send to a new born in Canada, but it took me forever, next time I'll stick to what I do best and I'll be buying one of yours for sure!

I know what you mean - so hard to find an Aussie made souvenir!
I'm sure your koala will be very well loved indeed.
