elephant softie

I used this tutorial and template to whip up a quick elephant softie for Noah out of an old pair of sweatpants.  I added buttons on each side for the eye, because I'm not that great with embroidery.  The tag on top can be used with a link to hang this elephant from a stroller or car seat.  He is very imperfect, and very homemade looking, but that's part of the fun of this little guy.

Awwww, I love it! I love that he's made from sweatpants and I love his cute ears! I really like the button eyes and Noah will have fun playing with them when he starts to learn how to grab small objects. He'll love it! :-)

Shannon,

This is a very adorable elephant. I'm sure that Noah will love to play with it. You are a sweet mommy to make this for him. :)

Blessings,
