Welcome Guest Blogger Marcel Parums!

 It's a pleasure to introduce Marcel Parums, my ten year old nephew who has made this wonderful felt elephant and taken the photographs himself. Over to you Marcel:
 "I made this elephant at school when we were studying India. Our craft teacher gave us a 2D pattern, then she showed us how to make the gussets to make the elephant 3 dimensional."
 "I chose purple for his rug, and sewed on the ears and his tail. The stitching that we used was blanket stitch."
"Finally after we'd finished sewing it all, we left a space for stuffing. We put a wire pattern inside the four legs to help him stand. We bent the ends of the wire so it didn't stick through the felt. And finally stitched up the hole."

Thank you, Marcel, for your blog contribution and for sharing with us your beautiful elephant!

  1. That is one cool elephant. Isn't it great to see students being creative like that at school. Well done Marcel!
