A Special Elephant Pin Keep !!!

Hello !!! Yet again it has been a while since I have participated in Kelli's Show & Tell Friday !!! Summer keeps one busy outside.

My little girls 8th birthday was yesterday in which I had made her a special elephant pin keep. I found the pattern through Indygo Junction.

I just knew she would love it since she loves elephants and sewing !!!

I chose cotton candy colors for her sweet Ellie with coordinating colors for the yo yo saddle.

She is quite a handy Lil' Ellie who holds little sewing scissors, pins, safety pins, buttons etc...

Did you notice the little tail is made of a string of old bone buttons? And her hat is a thimble which I added to the design, she also has the perfect ears for holding sewing needles !!!

Was my little girl thrilled with her special gift? Her picture here speaks a thousand words !!!

For the love of elephants, my daughter has a special blog she started a while ago to share these wonderful God given gentle giants as well as her collections etc... Please stop by to see her little place !!!
Thank you for stopping by this week !!! Have a great weekend !!
