May... Let's Make it the Month of Melly & Me!

Melly & Me are quite new to me, but I think I am falling a little bit in love! They are two sisters from Melbourne (I don't think I am making that up...) and they design fabric, patterns & have an awesome book out too! I have a stash of their range Little Menagerie & have done a few different things with it. I have plans for a few more creations too! Stick around this month to see what I have created!

So firstly... I would like you to meet Phoebe!

The pattern for this gorgeous Elephant was really quite easy, however, it was a little involved. It must be said though, that all those little extra bits you do for the detail, really make a total difference to the finished product! I am so pleased with the way it turned out. These are going to make great newborn or birthday gifts for little ones!

I actually made up two of these. One for my mother-in-laws shop, Just Patchwork and the other for a gift for a friend's little girl, Sofia! Totally heart breaking though as Emily just LOVED Phoebe! So I can see another in my near future. I am actually thinking of making one in blue... Ellyvan from Jungle Junction?  :-)

Lexi loved Phoebe too! Loved chewing on Phoebe... though truth be told, she could have been chewing on anything for all she cared... she's at that stage. Everything to the mouth!

You can't buy the patterns directly from Melly & Me, but there are loads of stockists... one of which includes my in-laws! You can get a pattern here if you like. I definitely recommend this one!

Stay tuned for some more softies... and... you'll have to wait and see!
