Hello fellow Craftsters!!

Please meet my latest baby elephant "Trumpet"...


Baby yellow elephant
loves fairy tales
have no one to read him stories
so he's learning how to read instead!



I've just finished creating Trumpet, a new design I drew up at 2am last night...you could say I had trouble sleeping!!... he is approximately 17cm/7 inches standing and is 5 way jointed using cotter pin joints and tiny black German glass eyes.  I've also given him big rosey cheeks!

He wears very beautiful dense mohair in a lovely soft yellow colour and is very silky and soft to the touch. His inner ears and footpads are made from Japanese linen fabric with lots of cute little "bugs" printed on it. Trumpet is filled with quality dense pollyflock and his feet contains a combination of glass beads and lead free steel shots to weight him down so he won't topple over when reading his story books! Cheesy


Thank you for dropping by to look at my Trumpet, he does love the attention! Cheesy

Pretty things are the meaning of life, pretty crafted things are bigger than life.

He is the cutest thing ever.  You are so talented.  It looks like something you could buy...and I totally mean that as a compliment.  Smiley

I really admire your work.  It looks so professional.  Is mohair a pain to work with?  It looks like it could be a pain.

I...Love...Him!!! He looks so soft and cuddly and I love the fabric you used for his ears and feet. And I do believe the rosy cheeks make him!  Grin
