I have completed an elephant softie for Georgia two weeks ago and I made a couple of mistakes. Overall it was really fun to make! It's not that perfect (one eye is bigger than the other!) but it's made with lots of loveeee! The pattern was given to me by Salihan from a magazine she saw. We named the elephant, Ebbie. Georgia has another elephant softie called Ellie (which was a free gift when we opened a bank account for her). She was so happy after I made Ebbie that she hugged her to sleep and brought Ebbie to school the next day!
Today I have made a dolly for her and the pattern is free from One Red Robin. We named her dolly, Nana. Nana looks so sweet! She sure looks very Asian as I have used Japanese kimono fabric as her dress. I'll try and make more softies for her and maybe in the process I'll make some for myself too!
