He is a brand new design catering for both the collectors and the makers and is therefore available as a pattern too.
Each elephant that I create is a OOAK in a Series, not one will be the same as I will be using hand dyed mohair, and different finishings on each individual one.
This guy is my prototype, and will appear on the cover of each pattern, he is approximately 25cm ( 10 inches ) standing, he is designed to sit, has a wobblejoint head, wired trunk and tail, blue/aubergine glass eyes with needle felted details.
Sorry I am SOLD

I had planned to release a new pattern at this years Western Australian Craft, Quilt & Stitch Show, 5th-7th August 2011 ( details below ).
I have the sample just about complete and hoped to to have a few more "Snuffles" done on time, but thanks to my new bundle of fur, I really think I will be pushing it!!!!
At least I will have one sample to display at the show, he is a new elephant design in a long hand dyed string mohair with a wired trunk and tail.
I will post him here as soon as he is ready for adoption and notify the "Special Sneak Peek" members.
If you are interested in this new creation and/or the pattern, please feel free to contact me or stay tuned to this page this coming weekend.
