Ok, I'm on the Loobylu's A
Month of Softies bandwagon. The first assignment - an
accessorized elephant. Last night, I got back from the DIY Trunk
Show. Great show, followed by a great invitation to an early Thanksgiving
dinner. I was just peopled out. So, I stayed home. After some food
and rest I got the bug to make an accessorized elephant.
started with extra yellow felt. Therefore, a yellow elephant. I
winged the pattern, so far so good. The accessory is a big ornate
"elephant saddle." I'm sure there's a real word for it.
In the pic, the point pointing down will go on the elephant's forehead.
I got on a roll making the saddle. I'm love, love, loving it.
the whole thing should be made with materials in the Brandyshpere
- except needing more orange embroidery floss to stitch together
the elephant. More to come. I'm trying to be patient, saving the
work for craft night and my Thanksgiving car trip.
the elephant was completed with everything out of the Brandysphere,
saving fiberfill and more orange floss.
Teeny is 10" tall, 7" wide and a foot long. He's super
stuffed and solid; a good heft for an elephant.
