WIP Wednesday

There are times I'm very glad when I get bored. Last week I needed to do something. SO I looked through my downloads for my Ultimate DIY bundle and made myself an elephant. The Lucky Elephant by Gingercake patterns. Now I am almost a purist I LOVE funky friends factory patterns so I'm very biased towards them, they are always so very clear. But I didn't mind how she set out her patterns. Though you can tell that she has come from clothes sewing not quilting because she uses 5/8" seams not 1/4" seams.

Though I'm not running out to make another elephant tomorrow as I personally don't like the pillow design much... But I am imagining what it would look like as a pretty awesome pillow for the couch if I made it a lot bigger and I can see potential. As I said I prefer the slightly fancier designs from Funky Friends.

I've also been working on some random crochet. Being rained in made me want to start something new so I tried out a monster granny square. This pattern is by REPEAT CRAFTER ME (check out her stuff if you haven't seen it before) It's pretty awesome what she does.

This lovely pattern is so cute :D I used a little bit of my Bendigo woollen mills cotton.... but now I need to work out what to do with it. It still needs eyes and the parts sewn on but I don't have a white cotton so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I'm debating just using my acrylic white instead but it will change the feel of it.

Happy Stitching,


  1. The elephant is adorable. And your crocheting is wonderful. I never could quite get the feel for crocheting. Well done!!

  2. Until last year, I never knew that quilter's used 1/4" seams. I guess I'm a "clothes" person because I always used a 5/8" seam, too. It's what I was taught.

    Your little elephant turned out nice. The fabric is so cute.


Thank you for your comments I love to hear from you.
