Well here are 2 more of my patchwork elephants completed for a commission. They have now made their way up to Manchester and happily settling in with their new owners.
One of the elephants is for a 3 year old girl so he has felt eyes instead of the usual button ones. I think that they work rather well!
The other is for a slightly older girl and so I have used my usual (treasured) buttons - a pink flower one which doesnt show up very well in the picture - and a pink round one.
The ears are slightly fleeced too so that the little girls that will be receiving them can enjoy stroking them!
It is an amazing feeling when someone loves your stuff so much that they will pay you to create some more for you! That is 6 of my elephants out in the world - perhaps I should keep the next one!
The lady who bought these two was over the moon with them and is delighted that her girls will have the pleasure of some handmade toys made especially for them. I think that these will be well loved!
