Alice, the Activist, is an Australian Koala wearable Puppet Hat. A Collectable Artwork.Totally unique.
One Of A Kind. Wearing a Eucalyptus Leaf Fascinator and Cape-let. She holds the World in her Claws and pleads for a "Fair Go" for Koala Habitats to be Preserved.

A 'double take' hat-puppet, she was my entry in the 2008 Alice Springs Beanie Festival's International Competition, where she came a close Second in the People's Choice Award. Alice can munch her leaf, thanks to a little button sewn in side, operated by hand.

Recently I have 're-worked' Alice, and have entered her in a local Art Awards, to highlight the sad plight of Australia's nearly 'Endangered' Koala populations.

It is an extremely warm hat, being crocheted in a very tight stitch with three yarns combined, to achieve a similarity to Koala Fur. The lower edge can be rolled up or down at the back. When rolled down it snuggly covers the ears.

The second photo shown, is her earlier attire a yellow pixie hat made from 'plarn' plastic yarn made from an old rain poncho. She now wears the fascinator. I'm still including this pic 'til I re-do the current ones.
