Only have 2 pics of one thing to share this post. Remember the two sneak peeks from the previous post? These are both of the one that got away! lol. The other one will be used for the magazine but not until next year. Meet Efelant. Such a cutie, and I have put him up on the site already. Unlike the first pink elephant I made, I haven't stained or put mending patches or stitches on Efelant. Not sure whether to leave him as is or do all this to give him that aged look. I'll have a think about it and decide later.
He's sewn from a vintage bedspread that I've been calling chenille, but it's not the normal sort of chenille. It's unusual isn't it? Baubly is how I've been describing it. Quite stretchy for a cotton and a much finer weave than other chenilles.
I've also used old doileys for the inside of his ears. Pretty.
Still haven't managed to fit in much play time for what I love to do most......mixed media. I'm just itching to make a collage or a free-sewing piece. Just maybe, as part of my "be kind to myself" resolve, I'll do some this week-end! As long as I can finish a couple of projects that have to be done first. Hmmmm.......
