elephants on parade

So what have I been up to on the sewing front? Well not much, hence the lack of posting. Mostly I've been cleaning, cooking, un-packing, and generally catching up on all the Real Life (TM) I ignored in the pre CosCol madness & post CosCol illness. Honestly it's been nice to take a bit of a break and re-charge my seamstress batteries a bit.

I did tap into my inner craftiness to work on a fun little project though - my very first stuffed animal. He was made for a baby boy due in September. I, of course, made a few changes to the pattern. I shortened his arms by an inch (so he looked more proportional), rounded off his head a little (originally it had an odd peak) and did embroidered eyes rather than felt or safety ones.

I'm supper pleased with how this little elephant came out - he definitely won't be my last stuffed animal! (I've already spent way too much time online looking for cute plushie patterns... bad Jenny!)


  1. Adorable elephant, Jenny! I'm sure the little guy will love it to pieces. ;-)

    Embroidered eyes/features are more fun than felt, wot?

    God bless,

  2. Oh, Jenny, I love that little elephant. It sits right in that little boys crib! Thank you for bring a smile to so many faces!
