Advent Calendar Day 18

The pocket for Day 18 of my elder daughter's Advent Calendar contained a fabric animal. Although the pocket picture was a polar bear in a Christmas outfit, I wrote on the note inside the wrapping "Why have a polar bear when you can have an elephant", a comment which made her laugh.

The little elephant was made with two different small print shweshwe fabrics, its ears were sewn right side out with an overlock stitch edging, which gives it a rustic appearance. Its tail is gold thread - a nod to Christmas.

She was highly amused by his tail and loved his curled trunk.
