Ticker tape elephant wall hanging

I saw this pattern in a magazine called love scrap quilts, the original was in a mixture of blues greens creams and other pale colours.

I wanted to do mine in black and white and i'm really pleased with it, other than the fact I got a bit of hair dye on it.

I used a mother of pearl buttons for the eye, and I have just realised I forgot the quilting part of it. Oh well! It's finished now so it won't be quilted.

I think I did it in a bit of a weird way, I took a photograph of the picture in the magazine, then traced it on to grease proof paper, twice, one of which I used to sew the outline onto the fabric sandwich, the other I filled in with the little pieces placement and use that cutting that and the fabric out at the same time.


  1. Great project! Very creative!

  2. Very interesting. I'm not into elephants but it gives me ideas for other pictures.

  3. omg this is fantastic!! I love elephants, I love the color scheme and the overall aesthetic...wonderful work!
