Hello! I have chosen to work with a Natalie Kalbach stamp today, the wonderful ELEPHANT!!! This stamp is amazing value as there are two stamps in the pack as well as a lovely 5x7 stencil to play with! Each elephant is different though the same size and shape. These stamps are big at nearly 7inches long. With this in mind I thought I would stamp onto fabric for my project!
For the main body I chose some bright cotton fabric and stamped onto the reverse so that I had some soft shading. Then I stamped again onto the bright side for the 'blanket' and cut that section out. I decorated that with beads and bobbly braid. Another whole elephant was cut out and I stitched them together leaving a gap for stuffing, adding a ribbon to hang by and a tail as well as incorporating the 'blanket' into the seam. Then I added some more braid and a button & bead for the eye.
Thank you for popping over, take care, Karen x
