kanga softie

Back in the day little felt toys were popular as keepsakes  for  children to play with. When I designed this felt softie I had in mind the drawings of Norman Lindsay in the book he illustrated "The Animals Noah Forgot"
I also referenced his drawing for the Melbourne Olympics in 1956 

 Thanks for the design advice sister of mine! M said to put in a tummy panel to give the softie a more rounded shape and  she was right!

 Mumma kanga is made from pure wool felt using non toxic dyes and she has recyled PET bottle  stuffing. She is a thoroughly eco friendly little miss!
She is off to New Zealand with a friend to remind her of home while she is away. I like a bit of
 "old school" sometimes.
