Elephant steps ...

As those of you who know my work will be aware, with the exception of my new raggy dolls this year, I very rarely make anything that isn't teddy bear shaped, so whilst waiting for delivery of some mohair for a customer's order, I decided to take the plunge and use my creative time to come up with something a little different ... and I designed my first fully jointed elephant! Well, that's to say, I have so far designed his head and body - hopefully he will soon have some limbs too!

So far he has an extravagant trunk, dozy eyelids and a little open mouth ...

... and BIG stripey ears!

He looks as though he is going to be a real cutie. How big will he be?

Aww, it already looks adorable Paula! I love that you chose to use fabric inside his ears. It gives it a nice vintage look. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Can't wait to see him all done. My youngest daughter loves elephants and I am sending her this link.

He looks delightful. From the side he reminds me of Mr Snuffaluffagus from sesame street
