My Creative Space - Giraffes, Hippos and Elephants!



My current creative space is my iron board where i have been creating this purse from a pattern from Nicole M Design! I bought this Japanese fabric from a stand at the Stitches and Craft Show because the cute little animals gave me some embroidery inspirations...

So i started embroidering and elephant - i did his little trunk 3 times before it didn't look like a misshapen 5th limb. When it's completed it will go into my shop and it will also come with a wee surprise in made out of the same fabric. Next i think i will do one with the hippo on!

What do you think?

Your elephant is very sweet, Welcome to Brown Owls! I just joined this year here in Melbourne.

Wow, you're much more clever than me. Using pieced fabric for the purse. Very nice!

The elephant looks great. That will be a very sweet purse when it is finished.

Gorgeous elephant! He's fantastic. Once I finish my next project I think a spot of embroidery is on the cards...

No fifth limb from my perspective - definitively a trunk (and truly scrummy fabric!).

love it, and can't wait to see the hippos!

Most definitely a trunk and bring on the hippos! Any plans for more African animals (e.g. lion) after the hippo?
