Thanc yu for Lumpi



you are most welcome, sweetheart!

I received the above letter all the way from Berlin, written and illustrated all by himself - I'm such a proud auntie! Lumpi is sewn using Anna Maria Horner's fabric with soft purple felt for the ears and pink buttons for the eyes. Lumpi is actually sitting on top of a quilt I recently made for Cade - photos to come soon...

The pattern comes from a book I'm loving these days called S.E.W from the Sew Everything Workshop by Diana Rupp. She's such a cool lady, and the book is filled with really simple and very wearable designs (mainly clothing patterns with a sprinkling of other items such as bags, and the above cute elephant). Diana offers sewing classes, which I've taken and they are great! Which reminds me that I owe her a photo of the pencil skirt I made in her class. I also made a dress from her book recently in a soft, cottony green and pink plaid. Photos to come soon...promise!

Cute cute cute. And I never would have thought to use that AMH fabric for a stuffed animal, but it's perfect. I'll need to go take a gander through my growing stash!

I am attempting to sew this elephant and am SOOO confused about the underside. Would you mind helping me out to understand the instructions better? They make absolutely no sense to me!
