Circus Elephant I

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks designing. Here is my first finished piece!

I love my little elephant (the circle is 4 inches/10.2 cm across). I’m turning him into the front cover of a scissors case/needle book. I’ve got another elephant in the works for the back. Look how glittery the Kreinik gold is! I’m so happy with how it turned out.

I’ve kept track of materials and stitches. At some point I’d like to turn him into a kit/instruction pack, but that will probably have to wait until this summer when I have more time.

    When I saw him, I said out loud “oh, that’s just lovely!”. I especially like the gold bands on his trunk! Really well done!

    Gorgeous Hannah! I love the way you have worked the ear and trunk in (what looks like in the photo) chain stitch. The adornments are lovely and finely balanced and the simple colour scheme adds drama. Well done!

    He is indeed a very fine elephant – if, indeed, he is a he and not a she. If he is a she, then needs must she is a very beautiful elephant. I think she should be a she. Beautiful.
