Polka Dots & Pachyderms

Polka dots and pachyderms just seem to go

 This little pachyderm just had to have
a dress & matching bow hand sewn from
 a reproduction 1930's cotton polka dot print.

Her fur is a lovely butter color viscose.
She's 8 1/2 inches tall, 5 way jointed & has
black glass eyes. She's been aged to perfection. 
The vintage buttons on the back
reminded me of big dots, the one's
in front match her dress.

Her favorite game is Tiddlywinks.
Her favorite song is "Polka Dots & Moonbeams"
  and she loves to dance the Polka.
Of course, her name is..................
Just for fun.
