family gifts-the gift of family


made a small elephant bag for a great niece. She is a big sister to the new baby, who will be getting an elephant quilt when it is finished. The little elephant bag still needs her floppy ears, pocket and embroidered eyes.

back of the bag, with vintage button. Reminded me of Gee’s Bend quilts. Still needs shoulder strap, still deciding on that.

    now I know it is so wrong to envy a small child but it’s impossible not to covet that elephant bag. What a lucky girl!
