Elephant Baby (Elli)
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 peal 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.
