This was a fun diversion from needle projects! (Though I guess that’s a stretch to say, given that I hand stitched the whole thing, huh?) I wanted something for a friend’s new baby, and though in real life, elephants are enormous and sometimes dangerous, they look so sweet.
The baby is a girl, but lest I contribute to the pink overload, I decided on pink accents, but this lime green just makes me smile to look at, do you agree? The fleece is super-soft, and I embroidered eyes instead of button eyes, since the little girl still has to go through the everything-in-the-mouth stage down the road.
The elephant is a little over a foot high and very huggable—I of course had to try it out first, just to be sure!
