Pattern Details

The Story Behind It All - In 2004 I had a dream. In the dream I was sitting at a round table with my youngest daughter at a café and with a pen I was writing ‘Elefantz’ in cursive script all over the white tablecloth. When I woke I knew ‘Elefantz’ was to be the name of a business the Lord would lead me to in the future. As my daughter and I had often talked about opening own café/bookshop when she grew up I assumed this would be that venture, but, His ways are higher than mine, and my understanding was limited only to what I knew right then. God’s plans were far removed from anything I could ever have imagined. In late 2005 I taught myself to embroider and quilt by reading craft magazines, and over the next few years I found great pleasure in this new pastime. In early 2009 I was inspired to design and share a free pattern via my blog and from there the enjoyment of designing stitcheries for others to sew grew and grew. I knew without any doubt that God had given me a gift, a portion of His creative self, and that I was to use it for His glory. Through His grace ‘Elefantz Designs’ came to pass and has been a wonderful blessing for my family and the ministries we felt led to support. Today I sell my PDF patterns all over the world and share my testimony each week through devotionals and photo-Scriptures on my blog. I remember His goodness as I design and stitch and pray He can always use me in this rather different, quite unplanned by me, mission field. I acknowledge each day that it is by HIM alone that I am able to do what I do. It is to HIM I give all glory and honour for the gift of bringing the ideas which float through my imagination to reality on paper first, then into fabric with needle and thread. Because of His gift to me, freely given that it is, I offer Scriptural inspired designs as a free gift to you, that you may stitch His Word, His message, His truth, and be blessed as you do. There are 20 stitchery designs in this e-book but I also have two larger projects you may like to sew as well, two quilts filled with Scripture. The first was “Promises & Borders”, a free Block of the Month which was shared via my blog in 2012. The second was “The Lord’s Prayer”, a 26-part project shared on the blog through 2014. Both of these pattern sets can be freely downloaded here from my shop – https://www.craftsy.com/profile/jenny-of-elefantz-designs I invite you also to follow my blog as I continue the Elefantz journey. www.elefantz.com My heart is for God, home, family, stitching, finding joy in the ordinary and living a gentle domestic life. These are the threads which weave through my blog posts a few times each week because I really enjoy writing, another gift He graciously enables me to pursue. May His Word be your hope, comfort, instruction manual and delight! Your sister-in-Christ, Jenny
