Kevin the Koala

Several months ago I put my hand up for the 'Handmade Challenge' which was going around Facebook.  I've seen it in blogland too as 'Pay it Forward'.  It's a promise to make something handmade for the first five people who comment on the post.  I've got my list of five people and worked out what I'm making for them, but I've got till the end of the year so I'm fitting it in where I can.

One of those people is about to move back to the UK to be with her new husband so I wanted to get her present done before she left.  Had no idea what to make for her so was flipping through my many craft magazines.  I came across Kevin the Koala and thought it was perfect for her as a momento of her home.

So here is Kevin the Koala:
He's made of a very soft flannel sort of fabric I've had in my stash for ages, and I don't know where it came from.  Had been wondering what to do with it, and then decided it was perfect for this project!  The white is polar fleece, so he's very soft and cuddly!

He comes from Patchwork & Stitching Vol 11 No 8
