Crafty Mamas April pin cushion swap
Now that my pachyderm is safely wrapped and winging her way to the Netherlands,
to a recipient who doesn't lurk around here,
I thought it safe to show what transpired from my Toledo map readings.
She is a vintage elephant
(though in retrospect for a pin cushion a thicker, denser quilting cotton may have been a better choice)
and is certainly not perfect
(matching up all those little fiddly gussett seams got the better of me)
but I hope that the recipient finds her charming...
Pattern: Heather Bailey effie and ollie elephant
Fabrics: vintage cotton and chenille from stash
Cute factor: 5 star
