We started discussing script ideas and how we could create a story with all three characters – Echoe the Elephant, Gerrie the Giraffe and Baxtar the Bunnie – whilst making it look organic. As all characters are from quite different places of the worldfamily pillow cover, we still wanted to keep an Australian feel with the story.

What was the key focus for the outcome of your sketches?

Our aim was to tell the story about friendship and different fun activities that Australian children could do, such as hiking and swimming with the idea that creativity and inspiration can be found everywhere. We wanted our hooded towel characters to be a part of children’s imaginations in everyday life.

How do you feel seeing it come to life?

Seeing it all come to life is incredible and quite surreal.The way the studio created these beautiful almost three-dimensional scenes with foliage and watercolour clouds moving and unfolding throughout the scenes is absolutely beautiful.


One of the simple tricks that I love that?allows me to get more stuff “done” is to start with a premade item and then embellish or change it up. Today, for Ten Minute Tuesday, I’m going to show you how to embellish a simple t-shirt with a bit of sewing and applique.?I’ve used the “trick” of altering an existing item before, in my lace trimmed t-shirt project, the dress made from two t-shirts and the tote bag I posted yesterday.

My 17-year-old granddaughter was introduced to crafting at a very young age. This has been our way of connecting over the years and has provided a great opportunity to spend quality time together. This summer she has spent a number of hours perusing websites finding projects that she was interested in making.? She is a “Do It Yourself” kind of gal, much like her grammie.

I’m back today with a spring project that brings the outdoors in!? It’s an easy spring planter that you could use as a centerpiece for your Easter table or anywhere you want to make a bold spring statement!? ? I got the idea for this willow branch cage planter many years ago in a Martha Stewart Magazine.
