Toys

Stuffed Elephant

I now have my very own sewing machine.  The elephant.jpgworld is my oyster in terms of what I can make!  My daughter has a small cloth duck which she has when she goes to sleep at night and I wanted to make a small stuffed toy for her.  I trawled the internet and finally found something which looked easy.  It wasn’t too bad but it came up too small so I had to size it up by half again (trying to remember GSCE maths!).  I managed to size it up successfully and I made my first stuffed toy.  A pink elephant.  The ears were supposed to be made of felt but I didn’t have any so these are double fabric sewn on.  My hand sewing leaves a lot to be desired.

Unfortunately my daughter isn’t interested in it but I was very chuffed at my first attempt!

Time taken: About an hour plus time scaling up
