A relative of ours just welcomed their first child into their lives, and I thought this elephant would make the perfect little gift!
I used this pattern, although I left out the fabric ears and tusks, and stitched eyes on instead of using safety eyes.
This is a crazy pattern though. You crochet from the top of the body down, and then make strings across the shell. The trunk and legs are then worked on to these sections, before a belly section is added. Was certainly a bit fiddly!
I love using my teddy punch to make baby cards, and this time I mixed things up with some of the papers from Craftseller magazine the other month. I love the colours from these papers.
