I was in need of some little gifts for three young children and was tearing my hair out trying to think of what to make. Then I happened to see this blog post yesterday and knew I just had to make some of these adorable elephants!
They’re actually very quick to make, so all three are finished already, and I couldn’t be more delighted with them. 🙂 It’s been a very long time since I’ve made any stuffed animals, and the quality of the stuffing available has improved beyond anything I could have hoped for. I used some from the Pellon company, and it feels so silky that it’s almost a shame that it’s inside the animals where it can’t be felt.
I decided to make two smaller elephants and one larger, and I’m very pleased with the results. I had some little labels on hand, so I added them into the seams as an extra touch.
