Elephants and Candy Canes...

I have a very dear friend online, who I met through a shared love of the White Stripes, and when I saw THESE patterns, I knew I had to make her a Candy Cane Elephant! (I kill me! :p )

It was pretty simple, if a bit fiddly, and is not the best example ever of my sewing skills, but I thought it came out pretty cute! :D

I used another one of the patterns to make these little giraffes for another swap...I was stalking to find out tastes, and discovered some remarkably similar ones in her wist, right at the same time I saw these patterns, so it was obviously meant to be, right?? From the sounds of things, they went over as well as I had hoped! I forgot to take a pic myself, so I had to beg her to snap one and send back to me:

My dd loved them so much, she BEGGED me to make one for her, so...:

I have a calf cut out from those patterns, too, but I am not sure I am going to make it or not...it calls for fun fur, and I don't want to use fun fur, which means it might come out pretty odd looking, and I might not want to waste my time...we'll see.
