After hearing my chat about Nellie the textile Elephant on local radio I was contacted by a local illustrator who , in partnership with a local author, had produced a children's book about ZIGZAG the stripy spotasaurus. They asked me if I would make them a large mascot ZIGZAG for their book launch.
Well, what could I say, I was so excited and agreed to do it. Then came the doubt, could I do it, then anger with myself for saying yes - I don't want to be known as a toy maker. Then the sense of letting myself and my grandchildren down as they gave me encouragement and never doubted my ability to do it.
SO I MADE ZIGZAG - approx. 30 inches tall in sitting position.
