Well for some time now I have wanted to design a koala square. A koala granny doesn't sound right, but I guess there must be a few old Koala girls who live long enough to be a "granny"
While koalas are intrinsically cute, their colour grey isn't so I had to liven them up a bit with bright surrounds.
So after trying to figure out how to do a koala square I ended up with a few of them that I decided to turn some into pot holders. A few of these have been raoked os to some very special people. I like my koalas to go to good homes.
These I backed with a basic granny pattern that I rather like. The colours of this one are reminiscent of indigenous art and the beautiful colours of the outback.
And once I had the hang of the koala square I decided I would make a Koala Komfort Pram Rug. I have no idea what I will do with this as I cant see grandchildren on the horizon for many years, however I do think it turned out cute.
The colours were all left overs from other projects and have a nice earthy tone. I also like the gender neutrality of this one. I guess I could keep on koala-ing and make it bigger, but I think the koala suits a pram rug rather nicely. I felt a basic granny was all that was needed here to alternate amidst the koala faces. The green has a nice eucalyptus gum tree colour, and the yellow is like wattle.
You can also see Buster my avatar koala sitting quite comfortably in the garden.
Any good ideas for what else I can koala-ise?
Thanks for Looking!
