Meet Ellie! (& Some Flea Market Fancy)


I don't know what possessed me to try making this elephant pin cushion the other night. I bought the pattern from Amy's shop a couple of weeks ago because I fell in love with the cover photo. I knew it'd be a challenge but... let's just say I definitely will not be making these little guys in bulk. Regardless of how difficult this was to make (for me), I love the finished product! And I'm now the proud of owner of a baby elephant named Ellie.




Isn't she the cutest?? She looks even cuter on my sewing table. I have been wanting a cute little pincushion like this for the longest time!

I'm also the proud new owner of a half yard bundle of Denyse Schmidt's re-released line "Flea Market Fancy"! I pre-ordered this bundle months ago when I first heard that it was coming back. It finally arrived while I was away for Spring Break. I had a happy little slip waiting on my door for me to pick it up. You better believe I'm hoarding these.




By the way, that cute little white crate? Target. Clearance $7! They have them in many colors so go get some. They're perfect for the craft room. Hope you have a lovely week. Happy sewing!!

  7. I saw his on Sugar Bee's Link party and had to come and have a look. He's so cute and would make a perfect gift for my friend. I will be checking out Amy's patterns for sure. I'm getting fabric envy too. In the U.K, unless someone can tell me otherwise, there just doesn't seem to be the choice!

    I am a new GFC follower. Would love it if you wanted to link this guy up at my blog launch link party, or even wanted to follow along too.
