I heart ... elephants

I didn't even realise that I had a thing for elephants until recently, when I started to notice that I seemed to be collecting them. Like these:

From the very sweet Sometimes by Emma Dodd.

Fabric bought at Patchwork on Central Park. It was my first visit and I was very restrained, only buying two pieces of fabric. There were many, many more that I loved but my fabric stash seems to be growing much faster than I can sew with it at the moment.

Then my sister mentioned that she wanted to make an elephant softie and I was like a woman possessed. I suddenly became obsessed with making elephant softies, even though I had no real need for them.

Attempt number one has a good trunk for hanging onto but does not have much character.

Attempt number two. His name is Albertus and he is curently residing in my shop.

This is attempt number four, already on his way to a new home in Norway.

And there are others. Soon we will be a house overun by marauding elephants ...
