elephants and whimsy

wondering what the mystery stuffie in my last post was? here it is in full view—my favorite elephant stuffie! making these for baby showers started back about three years. ever since the first one, it seems i can't show up to a shower without one. the blue guy is made out of a pair of cords i had that i accidentally dropped some glue on and could not get out. definitely the hazards of being crafty. and as you might be able to guess, this was going to a new baby boy.

and this little lady with her pink eyes went to my vintage loving "sister" in all things second hand. the main fabric is a vintage sheet that incorporates all the colors in her baby's nursery.

ps: the big floppy ears kill me with cuteness every time. never fails!
