Possum Magic

These cheeky possums are on their way to preschool, to share in some of Lauren’s enchanting possum tales.  The pattern was adapted from a basic bunny one, as I couldn’t find an Aussie possum one easily online.  Jill and Amelia helped to perfect it, and we are pretty happy with the result.

If you would like to make your own, you can ask me for a copy of the pattern at the next Sunshine Weavers craft day, or if you leave a comment below, I am happy to scan and email one to you.

Give me a home among the gum trees...

Our next crafting day will be at the school craft room and preschool garden at

 9.00am on Friday 28th February

and we will be revisiting some basic stitches and techniques making wee felt mice and cheeky chicks.  If you would like to take one home, we ask for a gold coin donation to cover materials, or you can just make one (or two or three…) for the school classes and fair.

Hope to see you there to weave a little crafting sunshine in your life.

  4. Hi Diana,
    Loving those pod sons you’ve made there. Could you email me a pattern? I’ve been searching for a possom that’s realistic enough but not too difficult for my craft group.
    Many Thanks,
