Jumbo the Elephant

I'm pretty happy with the way this guy turned out!! I love his ears... I used some Amy Butler fabric squares I had from a charm pack, and some ribbed border from an old, felted sweater for the backs. Both were reinforced with some iron-on stabilizer before I blanket stitched them together .

I wish I'd stuffed the front legs a bit more. They're just not quite sturdy enough. But they hold okay.

Adorable! I've thought of knitting toys before but haven't gotten the nerve to do it yet. Can't wait to see how the octopus turns out!
