Green Elephant



When looking at craft japanese recently, I was inspired by the cuter than cute stuffed toys and decided to have a crack at making one myself. Originally I set out to make it for my one year old niece, Ella (also cuter than cute), but now I am not so sure my sewing is baby proof enough. I fear she will swiftly destroy it, or worse, choke on something! Or is this just my excuse to keep the little guy around? I didn't use a pattern so the construction was long, laborious, and littered with mistakes but I learned a lot so I am happy. The little guy is about 6 inches high, made of felt, and decorated with simple daisy embroidery on his feet.

I think you're very brave to work on a toy without a pattern! He's cute. :-)
