As promised, here are a few more of the elephant monsters I have been creating lately.
They have been so much fun to make, I love choosing earth tones and pairing them with wacky vintage patterns and colours.
Most of the bodies are made from old wool suiting remnants that I find at thrift stores. The bodies of the two fellows below were fabric gifts from friends who know my style and colours!
This afternoon this rabbit creature was also born. His inspiration came from the fact that I was tired of turning arms, so he didn't get any ... I had one ear made for a trial experiment, the legs were going to be for something else and the felt for the face was laying closest to my chair. I love the way he came out, purely by accident! Do you ever create just using whatever is closest to you? I'd love to know if any one else works this way because it happens to me quite often (:
Have a wonderful Sunday evening!
