Primitive Americana Elephant
Primitive Americana Elephant
#AME Primitive Americana Elephant

Add old-time charm to your Independence Day celebrations with this adorable Americana elephant. He will be perfect on top of your cupboards, nestled among flags and banners along with berries and old metal stars!

I've created my own primitive version of these two American symbols by adapting an old Leisure Arts pattern. Separately or as a pair, these will make a really unique and eye-catching addition to your Americana decor or Independence Day celebrations!

My primitive patriotic Americana elephant has been sewn from heavily coffee-stained red mattress ticking and firmly stuffed. I have sewn the legs onto the body (the legs move slightly for posing) and added dark buttons for accent.

This elephant has sewn on ears, black beads for it's eyes and a tail made of braided jute which has been sewn on.

I've added a collar made of rusty wire and have added 3 painted salt dough stars (2 dark blue, 1 white) which dangle from the collar. There is a handwritten coffee-dyed hangtag which reads "America" attached to the collar.

In the elephant's hand I have placed a handmade stars and stripes pennant which has been coffee-stained and stiffened to look wavy. The pennant is made from red stripe material (may differ from what is shown) with a square of navy blue which has a rusty 1 inch star on it. I've stitched around the pennant with black thread and attached it to a stick. The flag is stiff to hold the wave shapes but does sag a bit to add an "old" feel to the elephant.

He measures approximately 9 inches (22.86 cm) tall --- 6 inches (15.24 cm) front to back and 5 inches (12.70 cm) thick. The pennant is approximately 7 inches (17.78 cm) long.

MADE WHEN ORDERED ---There will only be a limited number of Americana donkeys and elephants made for 2018. --- Please allow 14+ days for me to handcraft your special Americana Elephant.

This listing is for the Americana Elephant only.
