I made a Platypus :)
He was created out of a nice pink sparkly top (it has a glitter thread running through it) and a checked vest that I picked up in the charity shop as I liked the colours.
I have decided that due to his flamboyant colouring he is French, and therefore his name is "Plat du plu"
If you want to make one for yourself, they only take a couple of hours. You can find the pattern HERE.
