Finished object: Quokka Love

Unless you are into unusual animals, or have been or live in Australia it’s unlikely that you know about Quokka’s. Which is a shame, because they are pretty amazing. When one my au pairs (and good friend) returned home last year, I knew I HAD to make this little guy for her.

What fun I had making him. Quokka’s are pretty amazing animals. They are known to mainly live in the wild on Rottnest Island in Western Australia, and a couple of other places in Australia. They are known to be ‘the happiest animal in the world’ sparking the trend for ‘Quokka selfies’.

I used Schachenmayr Catania for this little guy and I think the colours work really well! And what about that little camera? Isn’t it just the cutest?
