One of my favorite projects in Cuddly Crochet is Ricky the Cuddly Koala… a design inspired by my Aussie boyfriend. Koalas, in my opinion, are irresistibly adorable on anything… but here are my top 5 koala picks:
This zippered case is fabulous for carrying odds and ends… I use mine for little crochet/knitting accessories. It’s great, because you can toss the entire thing in your bag, and not have to worry about your little stuff getting lost. The case is hard on the outside, so nothing will get squished inside… and it’s so cute!
This great design is on Café Press, so you can get this cutie koala on almost anything… but I love this travel mug. Who doesn’t need a koala with you all day long?
As an artist, I try to support other artists whenever I can… so I love that this adorable koala keychain is handmade. He’s even holding a little heart!
Crocheters/knitters need lots of bags to keep their projects in… you don’t want your yarn to get tangled up with your keys! This koala bag is just great for those projects- or anything else!
I don’t think that you can make a top 5 without a ridiculously cute Japanese product… check out this koala face punch for seaweed! I never really thought cuteness was a food requirement… but I may have to change my mind!
