    Oh I think your friend is going to love Eddie He may have some problems but that just makes him unique. He was made with love and that's what counts and not to denigrate Eddie or your work but he is a pincushion after all.
    BTW if your friend doesn't love him send him to my house.
    Give him a happy face.

    What a darling. I collect elephants and I think Eddie would be happy to do such special job.

    We don't see many elephants on this board. Is Eddie ever cute. I think he needs some French knots or something for eyes, and a yarn or embroidery floss tail. I would give him a crazy little grin. I know how finicky these little stuffies can be to make. Your being to hard on yourself. I think you did a good job. Your friend is going to be thrilled! I know I would. Please post a picture when you've finished him. Thanks for posting.

    I love him, esp since I too collect elephants. His tail is an easy fix with a little braided cotton yarn or embriodery floss.
    I love your story and the idea of adoption papers. Very clever.
    Jesus knows all my imperfections yet he still loves me. Amazing!

    I think he's adorable. I always told my kids, if everyone looked the same, how boring would that be?

    Awww I think he's cute! He needs a happy face. Couldn't you make a small hole in the seam and add his tail?

    Definite smiley face! He will be so happy being useful in his new home. I have a bear on all all four legs that I put kabob skewers in to straighten them and keep them from sagging..worked great.
