who was right, as were you all, I love the wombat.
Here is what Froggy Mamma said about her favourite Australian animal ~
"My favorite Aussie animal has to be the echidna - they're like cute little hedgehogs - only they lay eggs! Weird and cool. The babies are adorable too"
Thanks for entering everyone - My big girl felt everso important drawing the winner's name from the hat and sat with me (past her bed time) to be sure they had followed the 'rules'.
As your entries came in and you all said your favourite animals I mentally ticked off the ones I was pretty confident I could make a pattern/toy for ~ wallaby, platapus, koala and even an emu no problem ...not so sure about the echidna...how will I make all those spines? Froggy Mamma is right tho - they are seriously cute.
When I was a teenager I stopped the traffic in both directions to make sure a waddling little echidna made it safely across the road. I remember it seemed to take forever and I didn't want to scare it lest it curl up in a ball! it was very cool.
See you for craft on Wednesday; and as a little gift for you all I'll post the pattern for the kangaroo and joey so you can have a go at making your own ~ see everyone is a winner! x
