Spoiler alert... I made Amelia an Elodie the Elephant for her upcoming second birthday. She can't read yet, so if no one tells her, we'll be fine.
I got a book called One Yard Wonders and although I have made many quilts, I had never actually cut out a pattern and followed instructions to create a sewing masterpiece. I started by making my nephew, Isaac, a rocket ship.
And then I made my darling daughter Elodie the Elephant. I made a mistake and used white thread for her. (Apparently the rule that white matches everything doesn't fly in sewing). And it was blatantly obvious on her bottom seam (eh-hem). So I sewed a little skirt for her from scraps I had and used green embroidery thread to attach it to her midsection.
