I made this african baby elephant as part of a decoration project for next summer. The other part was a giraffe that I posted some time ago, and if you’ll look at the photo’s it looks like they have become friends. In real life this rarely happens, but it happens (check out the heartwarming story of Kiko and Loboito for my inspiration!). I used an old paint brush for his eyelashes and some fine wool for his tail (which you can’t really see on these photos…choosing is losing). No existing patterns were used, which was especially challenging for the head. I don’t know wheter it really shows, but I still struggle to get the eyes in the exact same place. I managed to cover it up by adding the eyelashes, but it’s not perfect. I’d love to get some tips on that!
