- What I did was use a round plate for the body and traced it on to the fabric and then I did my best on making a trunk.
- I used a button for the eyes and then I traced a small bowl on to the fabric for an ear and cut about an inch off so that I can get an ear look.
- I used brown ribbon to make the taggie feet.
- First I hand sewed the ear to the body. I left a little opening to stuff it so the ear can stand out from the rest of the body since I was using the same fabric for the whole thing.
- Sew the body together inside out.
- Then I stuffed it and put a small piece of cardboard between the body and trunk to keep it from hanging.
- Now you can completely sew it.
I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

Most of my sewing end up as gifts. My love language is time and that is how I share my love to the people in my life. So I usually make them a gift and or spend time with them. A friend of mine was having a little baby but we didn't know the sex so I had to make a gender neutral gift. Her nursery theme was elephants.
