    I am still on the cutsies trail lol. This is a cute little baby Elli that I made for a 30th birthday coming up in August. I like to stay ahead of the game.

    The favorite colors for this special person are, Turquoise, Sky Blue, Salmon and Grey. I searched my stash and came up with this print, perfect!

    I made Elli with large wired ears out of Salmon textured Batik. I use a grey print for the blanket and embellished it with glitter writers and colored in some of the light grey flowers.

    I was careful to let two of the designs on the fabric end up where I wanted to put the eyes. I then used those designs to accent the eyes beautifully, I love it.

    I sewed a ruby red crystal on her trunk and several White, Grey and Light Pink pearls behind her ears and in front of her ears. I made her a large crown, using the peote stitch. I used light grey pearls, cream Turquoise, gold and a large cream pearl for the center. I plaited her a tail and ran a row of gold and crystal beads up her tail and up her back. I put a cluster of pearls at the end of her tail.

    Eli the Elephant is adorable. Did you make your own pattern and are you willing to share. I make baby aprons to sell and all monies go to Autisim Speaks. My grandson is autistic and this is one way to help them

    I used a pattern by Melanie Hurlston but I only used the feet lol. The name of her company is Mellyand Me and the name of the pattern is Phoebe. I just used the feet of the pattern because I didn't want to take time to make my own feet. You can use that pattern as your base and make changes.
