I had a lot of fun making the wavy crochet design for my Crochet Lavender Grace Baby Blanket. I first made the YouTube video tutorial on 25Apr15:

Marlene M. is a Helenmay Crochet Special Donor Member for the year 2020 and she is participating in my random free giveaway for the year 2020. Part of my giveaway for this year is a crochet design request. Marlene requested an Australian Wildlife Tunisian Crochet Graphghan. Since I finished myTunisian Crochet Under The Sea Mystery CAL for the year 2020, I decided to start the Australian Wildlife Sanctuary and Zoo Animals Tunisian Crochet Mystery Graphghan (Start date 10Jul20). Before you get started, here is some information for you:

For those that want to practice with a Tunisian Crochet dish towel and/or soap saver first, you may like this YouTube video tutorial: Tunisian Crochet Simple Beginner Dish Towel and/or soap saver

People who have been following my crochet work know how much I love Tunisian Crochet for my Graphghans! I want to share that love with others. So far, I have completed 4 Tunisian Crochet graphghans: Minecraft, Guardians of the Galaxy,  Wizard of Oz, and the Under the Sea! I had tons of fun making each one, and each one is treasured by the recipient! I can’t put a price on them because they are priceless.  Each Tunisian Crochet graphghan that I have ever made was for family.  This is the first graphghan that will be made for myself.

I made a YouTube video tutorial to help get you started with the Australian Wildlife Sanctuary and Zoo Animals Tunisian Koala block:

 

 

 

I will post the free PDF graphs as soon as I complete them. I like to make the graphs 40 x 40, but for this graphghan I decided to Tunisian crochet panels 40 x 80, but the graphs will still be 40 x 40.

Here are the first 4 free PDF graphs for the Koala:

I completed half of the Tunisian Crochet Emu blocks 1-4. The Emu will take up a total of 8 blocks! I think that my Emu turned out adorably cute. I just have to finish the other half. Here are the first 4 blocks for my Emu:

Twin red pandas were born at the Australia zoo on 2Dec2019, but they are not native to Australia. I really love how my Tunisian Crochet Red Panda blocks turned out!!! I have finished the first 2 blocks:

Now you are ready to Tunisian Crochet the Red Panda blocks in place, which is next to the crocodile blocks and above the panda blocks. Use the picture below as a guide:

For me, attaching the top blocks to the bottom blocks is the most difficult to Tunisian Crochet.  Here is a close up of my finished seam:

sewn seam

If your blocks last row shows through parts of the finished seam, then you can make one more Tunisian Crochet row just under your previous seam. I had it happen to mine, but after I Tunisian crocheted under the seam, it came out nicely (As shown in the picture above).

I am now finished with the bottom and middle row. I only have the top row left, which will consist of 3 more 4 blocks. The next 4 blocks will be revealed when I am finished with it.

The next 2 blocks are half of my Sugar Glider! I love how it is turning out!  The picture doesn’t really bring out the smile, but the smile is adorably cute.

Did you know that the Sugar Glider gets it’s name because of  its insatiable appetite for all things sweet!  Too cute!

Here are the first 2 blocks for the Sugar Glider:

For my last character, I chose the echidna (ee-kid-nuh).  “There are four species of echidnas, which are found in Australia and New Guinea and are related to the platypus.”  Also, did you know that the baby echidna is called a Puggle?  “Soft and leathery, an echidna egg is about the size of a dime.”

Danielle Johnson contacted me via Facebook and said: “Thank you for doing this. (Designing the crochet koala’s). We finally got some rain so I hope and pray it rained in the right places. The number of Koalas that died is alarming and their habitat is burnt. It will take a long time to rebuild what was lost.
It’s still so heartbreaking to come back to my homeland after living in New Orleans and seeing this devastation.
Also prayers to the firefighters who lost their lives in the raging fire.
I can’t wait to make these (crochet Koalas) and donate them for raffle draws to raise money for the bushfire appeal.
Now we just need a matching Kangaroo! What do you think Helen?”
