new pattern...an elephant!

I made this elephant for My little baby Fran├žois. It was inspired by a pink and white plush cat my husband had as a little boy. This toy is made of the most wonderful mohair and stuffed with lambswool. I used some vintage "moving eyes" with metal shanks for this guy but have since made a few more with more kid-friendly safety eyes. The pattern is really great to work with and it is such fun to try out different color combinations.
I think this elephant has a really great vintage feel...like a carnival prize toy...but classier of course ;-)

I'll show you the rest of the herd soon!
