Elsie models outfit inspired by Pippijoe's Daisies

Meet Elsie.

She has been trying to avoid standing too close to the cushion that I made earlier this week. She's a little embarrassed; feeling that someone has made a bit of a fashion faux pas.

Its understandable. Who likes bumping into another person (or cushion) wearing the same outfit?

I have assured Elsie that she is carrying off the look better than some inanimate stuffed object. I'm not sure why, but she looked a little offended.

Anyway Elsie (who is a distant relative of Edward the elephant) is off to Mike's soon. She thinks she will be more comfortable around other softies. She's also hoping that one day, there might be a little person, who is willing to give her lots of cuddles.

Its safer than hanging about here ... she may be tossed on the sofa and sat upon.


  1. Well done!! Elsie is completely fabulous and I'm sure she will be well loved by a lucky little person somewhere!

  2. She's great! And certainly didn't end up like a placemat, she's a lovely one!!

  3. Elsie looks cool as!!! I especially love the ears. Great work :)

  4. Thank you all for your very nice comments about Elsie. She was fun to make. Louise, your pattern is really terrific.

  5. Nothing against the cushion, but Elsie looks fantabulous. Maybe it's because I love elephants so much. And Pippijoe's fabric. Or that I'm so impressed with people who can sew cute little animals!

  6. Elsie is gorgeous!! Perfect match with Pippijoe's fabric. Well done you
