    Lightbulb Australian baby Gift Ideas???

    Hi All,

    My friend is due to have a baby just before Christmas and she is planning on decorating the room in an Australian Theme. Does anyone have any ideas for something that I could make???

    Thoughts so far are gumnut babies - but I don't have any patterns

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards Kylie

    Can you sew?
    You could go to a fabric shop and get some nice Australian-themed fabric with koalas etc... on it and make curtains? Curtains would be really easy to make

    Um... platypus shaped cushions? They'd be really easy too. And cute

    Picture of a cute aussie animal framed to hang on the wall? Or paint/draw one yourself?

    Also, what about a mobile type thing to hang from fan celing? You could hang gum leaves, gumnuts, etc from it.

    The possibilities are endless, what a great theme

    Hi - just bumping this up to share what I ended up making ofr my friend. It is an australian animal mobile and she loved it.

    Thanks for your ideas phineas for your ideas - loved the idea about curtains - but unfortanly they are moving and who knows if they will be able to use them.
