She’s an elly-phant, and is the new companion for Baby Nell.
Baby Nell is the daughter of one of my dearest friends, and she made her entrance into the world on Australia Day. Baby Nell arrived much sooner than we all would have hoped, but I think she was just desperate to meet her beautiful family.
I was smitten when I saw the pattern for this elephant at a little patchwork shop in Moruya, while on our annual holiday. Already having an elephant theme for (the then unborn and unnamed) Nelly, I knew I had to buy it. I’ve never sewn a stuffed toy before, and it was so satisfying to have it work out. I immediately felt like contacting my year 12 maths teacher and telling her that in fact that side of my brain DOES work, I just found her boring.
Welcome to the world Nelly! xxx
PS. I have a ele-themed gift box for Nell. Here’s a sneak peek.
