elephant toy

Nis, Serbia






I finally decided to upload my creations, till now I was only looking at the other’s great projects and collecting ideas for my sewing. But I was motivated by my husband and the other people, so let’s start with it: :-D

This elephant is made for my friend Marija as a gift for her birthday, even she is not a child anymore but “woman at work” :-) But somewhere deeeep inside….. I wanted to make something cute and nice as a “remember on me”.

I sewed it by hand – with no using sewing machine, ’cause the material is so elastic and when I tried to do it like that, I was no satisfied as much as I could :)

Material Notes

fleece, fill material for pillows – I really don’t know it in English, in Slovak or Serbian I think it’s “vatelin”, 2 crystal buttons

    It’s so neat and gorgeous! I love the look of the fabric, it looks perfect to snuggle :) did you make the design up yourself?

    So cute, I think your friend will love it! It looks very well-made and the “M” label is a nice finishing touch.
