Benedict the Elephant Pin Cushion Kit

DIY Elephant Pin Cushion Kit

You can always tell a work elephant from a happy elephant by the trunk. Benedict is clearly a well-respected and happy fellow with his upright trunk position! Using rich fabrics and minimal sewing skills, this pin cushion is as delightful to make as it is to use. Benedict’s body and saddle are made with a custom dyed Kenyan fabric while his ears are buttery leather. For a regal finishing touch, a shiny silver leather strip adorns his head!
