The thing I started at 'Sew it Together'

The thing I started at bloggy meet 'Sew it Together' is now finished- I didn't just sit and talk, I cut this little guy out.
He's made from 'eco felt'- not lovely like the woollen felt you can get, but better than the normal acrylic- it seems nice and strong. Apparently it "is a high-quality polyester fiber made from 100% certified recycled plastic PET bottles. On average, 10 plastic bottles produce 1 pound of fiber." Try and get your head around that one and then ask yourself who thought of that idea!

Now really, which would you prefer?! The pattern is one of this lady's creations. I have got a bit to learn about ear placement.
So, my quest to make up any softie elephant pattern that I see continues, Parsley (or Beet) is cut out and I have started sewing.


  1. Very cute! You will just love your Parsley (or Beet), they are just sooo gorgeous to make.

  2. Hi Tanya he looks great. Can I ask where you got the felt from. Thanks

  3. Very sweet - I like were his ears sit.

  4. He's adorable! I made up an Ellie Elephant by 'Melly and Me' before Miss G was born - her nursery has a jungle animal theme.
    Can't wait to meet Parsley (or Beet).

  5. He is just soooo cute Phalara

  6. Very Sweet! I Love that its recycled...

  7. I knew he looked familiar!! I must try the eco felt one day.It looks like it holds the shape well.

  8. Oh so cute!!! He is adorable... and to think that he started out as a water bottle.
