Just a short post tonight. I just finished the kangaroo and wanted to show you. I took pictures last night but they came out too dark so had to wait until morning and try again.
This is the Joey. He isn’t easy to see with black eyes and nose on the dark brown and he really isn’t very pretty but he fits in her pouch so he will do.
This is the mother kangaroo. She is very large but a good size for the Swagman. I am going to make another one also that isn’t as large and hopefully a prettier animal. There are many kangaroos in the story so I can use as many as I want to make. I am pretty sure two will be enough for me.
Here she is with the Joey in her pouch. She has big feet but finds it hard to stand steady with him in the pouch.
This is the group, Swagman, kangaroo, and another little animal in the story. You see she isn’t too large with the others.
Now I am back to making the third tiger for Little Black Sambo and I then need Black Mombo and that story will be done. I am also working on the song “Froggy Went a Courting.” I need to just sew up Miss Mousie. Really she is a vole but they are really mice anyways. I have started Uncle Rat.
As you see he is really a mole but if I take off his hat and give him real eyes he will be a good rat. My animals have to play many parts in different stories. I have a cute pattern for a frog that I will cut out after I finish the last lion. And I have a crochet pattern for the white dove that eats froggy at the end of the song. I will have to make up patterns for the moth, black flea and bumble bee but think I can do it. I am so glad I have all this free time now. I am having a ball. Have a great day.
