“Australia, Australia, Australia, we love you, Amen. This here’s the wattle, the emblem of our land. You can stick it in a bottle, you can hold it in your hand.” (apologies Monty Python)
What could be more Australian than a Kangaroo? There are lots of designs – few look roo-like sadly (mostly folded by people who have never actually seen one), I will keep looking as I am not happy with the hind legs or head of this model, all else is fairly good.
I like that there is a Joey in the pouch and the front legs are positioned right but the bulk of paper there makes further shaping problematic, still for my first attempt at this model I am fairly happy with the outcome.
You too can fold a Kangaroo for Australia Day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COgQlI0HzDU
