Remember Eloise, the larger elephant, I wrote about here? Well, this is the mini version of the same pattern (though not too mini--he's about 9" tall when seated). I was afraid to try this smaller elephant first because I was worried that the curves would be too tricky to handle on a smaller scale. I am pleased to tell you, dear reader, that I had no problems!
In fact, I just might believe that Elmore is even cuter than Eloise, if that's at all possible! He was made as a baby shower gift for my co-worker. I used the same lovely corduroys as with Eloise. The main difference is that I did a hand blanket-stitch to attach brown felt circles for the eyes instead of sewing on buttons (baby safety, you know).
