Here's something a little different for me.  My sister, Patti, asked me to make a stuffed elephant for her to give to a friend after the birth of her baby in early June.  The baby's room has an elephant theme, using gray and yellow.

 Here's the elephant.  He's made entirely out of fleece.  The yellow on his chest/tummy is a heart.  I had to sew it on the fabric before it was sewn together so it's a bit low. 

And here's his tail.  It's not like a normal, thin elephant tail, but I needed to write "You are my sunshine" on it and that meant it had to be a bit wide.  It still looks OK in person. 

I pray that the delivery goes well, the baby is healthy and strong.....and that the elephant will bring joy to both Mom and Baby!


  1. Oh, Jeanie! It's perfect! You are so amazing, wonderful, thoughtful, creative, and sweet to do this! Baby Sunshine will love his elephant, I know!
    Love you!
