So my little sister is 21. I can still make her an elephant toy for her birthday. She’ll never be too old for elephants.
You may recognize the elephant as Ysolda’s Elijah. I made a couple of minor changes (bigger body, garter ears) but it was definitely mostly Ysolda’s pattern.
My sister has a thing for elephants, and I traditionally give her elephant-themed stuff for her birthday. As this is her 21st birthday, a pink elephant was especially appropriate.
I loved the pattern. It was very cleverly constructed and had NO SEAMING which is a huge plus for me. It was a bit difficult to pick up stitches from already-stuffed sections, but it wasn’t terribly difficult. It only took me 4 days, and just over one skien of Filatura Di Crosa 501. It was really nice to work on something quick, fun, and different. Thanks Ysolda!
