Rebel, it turned out so cute! I'm really loving him and you're right, it does make a good pillow. LOL I'm pretty sure we're meant to be new best friends, too. I think we probably have similar brains. :)
Thanks so much for the great comments - Jan, Christine, Amy, Carolyn, Heleen, Katherine and Lynn. And thanks to everyone for liking my design as well. I know I will be packing my cut and sew Drop Bear the next time I go camping!
I grew up camping with the story of the drop bear that would fall out of the tree. I always knew they were not quite as cuddly as a koala but didn't realise how scary they might really be. It is so cute. Congratulations on top 10. Great to see something so Australian get a place this week.
