Elephant Amigurumi

My eldest granddaughter loves elephants. When I was trying to figure out what to make next she suggested an elephant. I wonder why? LOL. Anyway, I had her pick the color of yarn from 3 shades that I had enough of and she chose this lovely shade of light purple called "Orchid" from Red Heart. I have been working on the elephant for a few days now and finally finished her up tonight.  Here she is.



The pattern is one of Sharon Ojala's, it's called Little Bigfoot Elephant.
I just LOVE Sharon's patterns and plan to do more of them. Her videos are very detailed and informative.

This is the first time that I've used safety eyes. I just got a box last week and they are pretty easy to use. The pattern didn't call for hair, but as usual I had to change things up a bit. Baby elephants have fuzzy hair on top of their heads so this one needed some.




Don't you just love her pink toes? I improvised on the tongue as it called for felt and I didn't have any. I used pink yarn and made it smaller than the mouth. I think it worked out just fine.

Here's a view of her behind. I love her tail.


 I hope that my granddaughter loves her elephant. She'll be coming down for a visit in a few weeks and I can't wait to see her.

 Well, I guess I'll work on my afghan for a few days until inspiration hits me. I'm about 3/4 of the way finished with the length of the afghan, so there's a ways to go yet.

Spring has sprung in my neck of the woods. Flowers and trees are blooming everywhere. It sure is nice to be able to walk the dog and not have to bundle up.

Dead Laptop Slow Progress

My laptop has died. It won't connect to the internet. It's old as the hills and not worth spending the money to replace the network ...
