…if you look very carefully, you will see tiny people. They are rarely seen, and very easily frightened, but oh so cute if you manage to steal a glance.
As a child, I loved “Snugglepot & Cuddlepie”. A constant favourite, it was re-read many, many times. The imagery the story evoked was (and to a certain extent, still is) enthralling, as was the joy of imagining these tiny, plump little babies running around. Hmmm… I think I need to go raid my mum’s bookcase & have another read, for old times’ sake!
So obviously, this little fellow was inspired by the classic May Gibbs characters. The story was brought to mind by a good friend over the weekend, and I couldn’t help but try my hand at a little gumnut child of my own!
