Plush You and Patterns

The Plush You exhibition was on in Seattle last week. I sent tome of my Australian animals. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos of the things I sent. I found these on flickr, platypus and koala and there was a wombat too. So thankyou to everyone who took pictures so I could see the amazing creations everyone made.
I had some exciting news yesterday. I didn't think this would be out for ages - the Australian Women's Weekly published an extract from the Softie book and also included my elephant pattern.

Congratulations Kate. They look great. Pitty the tags weren't a little bit more professional.
Sorry is that noticing too much.
I'm big on handwriting.
Will have to grab a copy of AWW.
Your elephant is one of my favourites.

Wow! Vogue one week, Women's Weekly the next - you are fast becoming a softie celebrity! Congratulations, that is so exciting and well deserved. I still can't work out how you do it all, but I wish I had half your energy and talent.

I'm a huge AWW fan and was thrilled to see your pattern in there! I own the book and must get around to making it! before I realised it was yours I think the elephant was the cutest!

now you can make your own nappies by using PUL or malden mills fleece... i just found this fabulous website http://www.ozclothnappies.org/index.html and have spent way too much on fabric on some of their links! you can try ebay in the states but its a bit hit and miss and depends on the time!

good luck
Corrie:)
ps I have a spare adorn left over if you are still interested just let me know!

Oh Kate - I have been trying to get a copy of this ever since I heard the book was in the weekly - do you have pics of all the pages?? I'm surprised that we weren't told, given our work is pictured...
