    Love the nice bright fabrics you used. Someone is going to love playing with it.

    So very nice. I remember making one when my D-GD was coming. Put a music box in her (the ellie) tummy and it played "you are my sunshine" which her Mom & I used to sing her to sleep pre and post arrival. In the hospital, I started up the music and Caitlyn picked up her head and turned right to Ellie. Sadly the Ellie got lost in a move about 3 years later, but the song lingers. DGD is now 22 and still loves the song. I wish I still had the pattern cause your beautiful elephant has made me long to make more.
    Bless you for the happy memory.
    Each project adds to my stash of knowledge. Love sharing the results with anyone who'll look.

    I agree. Your selection of the bright colors were just perfect for this gift.

    so bright and cheerful, really love it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
