Playing with Piecing
Perhaps it's a little cartoony (Is this a word?); but it's recognizable.
I redrew my elephant. This is more like it.
How should I piece it?
What if I divide the image vertically with lines on either side of the face?
What if I try horizontal seams at the base of each ear, across the top of the head, and across the top of the trunk?
The sewing is straight lines and 45 degree angles. It should be easy enough.
The only matching that has to be done is where the two halves of the trunk meet at the red seem line.
Thread painting on the ears and trunk would add some detail.
All in all not a bad looking elephant.
