Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk... by lulufae Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk... by lulufae
And said goodbye to the circus because the bastard ringmaster was altogether too narrow minded and failed to see that Miss Nellie was DESTINED to be a ballet dancer. There was just no way she was going to hang around and be told that pachyderms lacked the grace and agility necessary for her chosen career path, dammit, SHE WAS A GIRL ON A MISSION and he was just elephantist!

Nellie is made from needle cord, is entirely hand sewn and buttons jointed so that she has all the movement she needs to BE THE DANCE *nod* Pattern is all me, for the curious.

"Off she went with a trumpety-trump! Trump, trump, trump..." Childhood memories, right there.

She looks gorgeous! Seriously, these little creatures are just brilliant <3

Your polarburr's next ;) I'm trying to work out a fabric to do her in that makes her huggable...thinking brushed cotton, like the flannel sheets you had when you were a kid...
