    This is just too cute. Happy birthday to her.

    If she hasn't already discovered this site, she might enjoy it and learn about these great and beautiful creatures.

    what a cute little elephant. I love making minis but what a pain in the butt to turn.
    did you draw up a pattern for him. Boy, you are good at that. the turning, sewing and decorating it.
    I really appreciate the work that went into that. fantastic.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you. I did follow a pattern. Did alert my g-d that it was made w love and it is not a toy. To be treated as a collection item.

    Link to pattern used.

    First time sewing a fur mini. Sewed body by hand. Made arms and legs mobile. Embroidered the eyes on mine.

    Knitted this one for a baby shower. Have knitted teddy bears too but had not sewn animals.

    Now want to sew a mini fox for my daughter.

    Sewing works faster.

    WOW! That takes talent, determination, and lots of love to make something that small! A bushel full of kudos coming your way! Glad you told your DGD that it's not a toy. Just soooo cute!
