Look at this darling piece of fabric my friend, Jenni, from Down Under (actually Tasmania, which is down under Down Under) sent me to show me all the critters they have down there, especially their Tasmanian Devil (which is the little black guy with the white collar near the middle of the piece). Jenni told me that "the Tassie Devil is about as big as a cat, is nocturnal and eats dead things, is very shy and makes a lot of noise when fighting over food. They live in the bush (forest). They are cute and have been tamed in wildlife parks. But they have the ability to bite through the thickest bones (have too to eat Kangaroos bones). So most people leave them alone. They have developed a disease and the numbers are dwindling, so some disease free ones have been sent to some Zoo's on mainland [Australia] to save the species. Still a lot around though." You can click on the picture to enlarge it and really see the different animals.

I am going to figure out how to use this fabric in a fun piece so it shows off all the animals. Any suggestions??
