Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition - Here's My Entry!

Hi everyone :)

Over the last few weeks I have been working hard on my entry for the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2014...

Here is the packet I started with:

And here is what I made :)

Yep, it is a comforter for the belly monster!  AND the big little monster thinks his little brother will love it and give it lots of "huggles" when he arrives in August :D

The elephant head on the comforter was made with the Ric Rac "Parsley and Beet" pattern - Jodie is so clever, I am in love with all her patterns!

I have paired the umbrella trimmings with some super soft baby blue spotty flannelette purchased 3 yrs ago from spotlight and I have added a few ribbons to the outer edges of the comforter too - with the natural fibers in the umbrella trimmings contrasting with the softness of the flannelette and the ribbons I think this will all help stimulate belly monsters sense of touch. The comforter is backed with a very cute elephant print polar fleece, purchased from spotlight last year - I want to  eventually make another hooded vest for both monsters from this fabric too!

I thought about embroidering eyes onto the elephant head, but have decided to leave it as is...I think its cute this way :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like my creation!
