Elephant Bag

Even with help from the flickr group for Last-Minute Patchwork Gifts, I was confounded by the wee elephant, Peanut.

So I decided to make use of the templates for the elephant’s body and ears and put him on the front a bag I was making as a gift. I stuffed the body with a bit of fiberfill to make him stand out a bit from the body of the bag. I forgot to photograph the contrasting fabric on the inside of his ears. And I can’t do it now because it’s already wrapped!

He looks so cute! I’m going to make more. Definitely. LittlestCatHead has already requested one.

Feb2012 ABQ  This is me trying to cleverly hide the zit on my cheek. This did not work because Soph didn't tell me I wasn't actually covering the zit. Now it looks like I'm drawing your attention to it. ARGH! But hey, we had fun.

Feb2012  ABQ    I hate the way I'm pursing my lips in this but Soph looks so stinkin' cute that I had to post it :)
