Little Elephant


My project for the week was this cute little elephant amigurumi. 

I'm working my way through a huge stash of yarn that I've collected over the last 5 years. Some of it is left over from finished projects. Some of it's part of an actual project...or two...or three that have been sitting, unfinished and collecting dust in my yarn drawer. 

For this little guy, I used some lovely soft yarn that was left from a newborn nappy wrap I made for my little boy, who is now 2. I never ended up using the wrap on him, but it's been a favorite of Winnie the Pooh and other assorted dolls and stuffed animals in our house.

Anyway, back to my elephant. He is just so stinking cute. I think he's going to be the first of lots of little amigurumi. Maybe I'll do a pink elephant next.

  3. Oh I love this - I'm a bit partial to elephants since we rode on one for our wedding in Sri Lanka! I'm so hopeless at craft things - I wouldn't have a clue how to make one.

Do you share your patterns. My friend Liz wants to take a white elephant to her family white elephant party next December and we have been wanting to make her one. Your blog is wonderful!

    3. The elephant is from a lionbrand pattern. I think it's free on their website. Want me to make a white one for Liz? I have loads of white yarn.
