    the tail fix is easy....take 3 pieces of yarn, (you will have to figure out the length) take a needle and thread all 3 through the appropriate spot1/2 way through so that each piece has each end out (kind of like making the letter V with the bottom part of the V, being inside the approapriate spot...(you will have 6 string pieces coming out at that spot)..then braid the yarn together (2 strands together so that you have a total of 3 sections you are braiding...then tie a little knot at the end....of course use coordinating yarn....Enjoy...I think he is cute...

    He's as cute as a bug! I'll bet you could make lots of them for people, but it does take a long time to make one. I am not good at all at stuffing, so my elephant would look MUCH worse!

    Aww, I think he is adorable! I love the idea of him having an adoption form - I did something similar once with a 10 lb jar of sauerkraut. (The strange things we do when we like a boy!)

    I like the story of Sad Eddie, so even though he may really be laughing on the inside, I say run with Sad Eddie's Tails of Woe. What a hoot!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    He's not sad, but a happy face may make your friend smile when she uses him. Very cute.

    He/She is precious! My daughter is 32 and collects Elephants. I'd love to have the pattern or tell where we can find it. BTW, how can he be sad when you gave him life! "Mommy"! Love the fabric also!
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    He's got to have a happy face--his trunk is pointed up! We all know that's a good thing. I collect elephants, too (hint, hint) and would suggest taking a short stitch with some embroidery floss and braiding it for Eddie's tail. All self-respecting elephants have little tails!

    my vote is for a happy elephant. I agree with Anastasia that it's name should be Edna with the color but I do like Eddie. I am sure it will be loved and the oddities will never even be noticed by anyone but you.

    Happy face! Bridget and I think Eddie is absolutely the most beautiful and truly special elephant we have ever seen. If he needs a home you just PM me and send him my way. He will live with all of my oddities and cute things I keep collection from everywhere. Eddie is magnificent and all of his 'happy accidents' (never call them mistakes!) make him truly unique and personality; just like his creator!
    Evelyn
    In love with Eddie!
