Onion the Plush Bunyip

Meet Onion the Bunyip... a plush doll of my own creation which I finished making only just now. 




Onion the Bunyip is made of material which I bought from a patchwork craft shop, when I was in Darwin for my Honeymoon a few years back. The prints are a variety of Aboriginal designs - very cool and earthy.

Initially I had intended on designing a bunny rabbit plush doll, but the design evolved into something entirely different. There wasn't a single creature that I could truly compare this plush doll to so I decided he must be a bunyip.

Other distinctive features of Onion is his lovely floppy ears, and rotatable arms and legs.
