It’s Earth Day! My kids are picking up trash at school today. And they aren’t happy about it. I guess the kindergarten class picked up trash yesterday. But my huge 7 year old wants no part in it. I always think their school looks great. I had no idea there was trash lying around. Maybe they are a little messy leading up to Earth Day so the first graders can be put to work.
Well since it is Earth Day I am doing a special giveaway. I have a wonderful collection of organic fabrics from Harmony Art. And I haven’t really been sewing with it lately like I should. But I do have one of my stuffed elephants all made. It’s made with 100% organic fabric and stuffing.
I made this elephant with the inspiration from a vintage stuffie that my hub had as a baby. His grandmother from Kansas made it for one of his older siblings and it has survived being passed down to each child and the many grandchildren. I took this old elephant and just laid it down on my copier and enlarged it a bit. Cut up the copy and there was my new pattern for “Ella”. The ears even have a bit of stuffing in them too, just like grandma Myrtle made it.
The “Ella” that will be in the giveaway is the blue one in the middle of the photo, with the small leaf pattern on the ears. The last date of the giveaway will be next Wednesday, April 29th. Just leave a comment to enter!
Happy Earth Day and thanks for participating in the fun!
