Once a year, my town runs a "Welcome Platypus" festival, which I think Craftsters would really love - it's a celebration of art, music, community and environment. We put out art tables for kids (and kids at heart) and have all sorts of classes and workshops. So, what would be better for a platypus festival than a pile o'platypuses?



I had the hugest amount of fun digging through my fabric stash and coming out with various scraps and colours for these little guys. They were very popular with some sold and some for prizes (and others kidnapped by friends and family!). Here's another shot to show the pattern off better:



Aren't they cute? They're tons of fun to make, the pattern is from Funky Friends Factory.

Edit: Thanks to Myrdda who reminded me there's a version of this pattern available free! It's not identical, but it's close enough Wink

EDIT again, I am so edity whoo

So as I mentioned later in this thread (no it makes sense), my boy is a platypus loving Batman obsessive, and so - drumroll please - I give you a Battypus!



I tried to line the fabric up to ensure maximum Batman, he seemed to like it Smiley
