We are so excited to be sharing our brand new creation - our Memory Elephant keepsake.
Here's how we made our Elephant's from some outgrown baby grows.
Step 1 - From the selection of beautiful clothing items we choose which piece of clothing will be the used on the body and on the head, how exciting! We think a trunk with spaceships will look fab, just love that pattern, it needs to be one of his best features!
Step 2 - All the body and head pieces are cut out and lined with interfacing which gives a much better final appearance to the finished item.
Now the fun bit - the sewing!
Step 3 - First piece of sewing, sew together the four main head pieces
Step 4 - Next we carefully pin to attach the trunk to the head pieces
Step 5 - Here are those beautiful big ears, he's going to be so cute :)
Step 6 - Whoo hoo the head is finished, isn't he beautiful.... temporary felt eyes pinned in place to get the right position before securely fitting the safety eyes.
Step 7 - Sew together the body pieces, then finally pin the head in place on the body, turn the body inside out and add the stuffing.
