Emmylou the Elephant

Emmylou was originally designed as a heat pillow to contain wheat or rice that could be warmed in the microwave. The baby elephants were designed as pocket warmers. I thought it might be a good idea to sew them up as little soft toys maybe suitable for a baby with contrast fabric on the back and embroidery stitching on the front.

I did a simple running stitch in embroidery thread around the main detail on the elephants.

The back of the elephants are contrasting fabric from the same collection.

The finished elephants.

It was a nice simple project and I really enjoyed the hand stitching.
