The Ellie Bag

Ellie knows all to well what it’s like to be forgetful and lose track of one’s baubles and little necessities in life. She does not want you to suffer this same fate. At just the right size to carry your notepad and lip balm, Ellie is here to save the day.

I thought I'd blog here and there in the next few weeks during the blog tour about some of the projects in the book. Maybe share some sketches, some inspirations.

This Ellie bag was going to be a mouse, a kitty and a bunny before I settled on elephant. All were cute but in the end the big ears won me over. I had lots of other bag and accessories idea. I was really loving the idea of piggy and kitty change purses and little felt money. I think I could do a whole book on stuffed animals as bags. I love them!

    I LOVE that Ellie bag, I need to make one :) It totally reminded me of the song we used to sing in elementary school “Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and said goodbye to the circus, off she went with a trumpety, trump, trump, trump, trump.”
    Thanks for the little trip down memory lane
