The happy little elephant

My poor little sister has had a bit of a tough life. I won’t go into it but she’s definitely found it tough going at times and although she’s 25 (*cough* I think she’s 25) I’m pretty sure that you’re never really too old for a happy little elephant friend to comfort you in your darker moments. I always promise her a present and never come through so this year she’s damn well getting one. The fabric I chose is quite pale and when I was cutting it out I wasn’t sure how it would look as a finished elephant. Now he is finished and I can say that he looks damn cute. I have plans to finally make myself one soon too. They’re a lot of work but the finished product? Very huggable.

    So very adorable!! I love the braided tail.

    I gave my grandma a stuffed teddy bear when she was in her 70’s — she’d been widowed a year or two, after having been married to my grandpa for 50+ years, and I thought maybe she’d like having something to hug when the going got tough (I didn’t live near her). She was tickled pink when she opened that gift and went on and on about how much she loved it. So, yes, one is never too old to have a stuffie to hug during dark moments =)

  3. Cute, sure she’ll love it!!
