MY LITTLE MENAGERIE

MINE – Kids in Olinda

Shop 5, 540 Mount Dandenong Tourist Road, Olinda

Wednesday 3rd of September – Monday 13th of October, 2008

 

 

Thelma's felt stuffies, with all their quirks and individual mannerisms, took with ease and fair amount of flair to the window of MINE – Kids in Olinda for a spell in 2008. Stuffed creatures, made completely by hand by Elaine Haby, sure to wheedle a grin from even the sour.

In addition to a host of stuffed creatures, roomy tote bags fashioned from Belgian linen have been added to the handmade parade. Thelma's tote bags are large enough to house a stuffed companion alongside a favourite read. They are lined and double-stitched for good measure.
