I got home from work about 7pm last night and while Emma went to the gym, I went to the Craft Room with no idea about what I was going to make.
Now that I have the space, I can look around the room, drag out books and just attack my next project with gusto. I've been desperate to make this fella for ages. I've long been a fan Sweet Nellie's fantastic work (I have one of her lovely birds called Bernadette). Her Snoots exude charm and wonder.
You'll find a pattern for her elephant in softies edited by another talented person from Softies Central.
This pattern is fantastic and the instructions are clear and detailed. Very happy with this chap. I have a niece who loves elephants, so I think I might save him for her birthday.
As I was looking for the all the materials, I had little memory flashes of where I got everything from. The blue wool felt is from ebay, the orange dotty fabric is a bit I picked up in Tokyo last October, the little felt ball on the tip of his hat is from a shop in Pt Lonsdale (got a handfull about 3 years ago) and the elephant trim around his neck is from a scrapbooking shop in Mornington.
So I didn't think I'd get him all done last night, but suddenly I had this charming softie smiling up at me. Welcome.
