Little Critters

A few weeks ago while browsing the needlework section of Hobby Lobby (my favorite section...lets not mention that the manager of the store knows me by name and always asks about my "baby" if he's not with me!) I found a pattern for these little critters. I love them! They are surprisingly easy, a little time consuming, but so fun to see them come together.

I'm not exactly focused or quick at getting projects done (ahem...sorry, Lydia...expect a BIG surprise at Christmas). I've had all the pieces of this elephant ready to be stuffed and put together, but it wasn't until last night, that I finally finished.

Sadly, we had to say goodbye this morning. My mother-in-law took him back to Texas with her to give him (and the blanket) away as a baby gift.

These are SO cute- and great gifts!!! I tried making a cute kitty critter...let's just say it only has a head. I couldn't figure the rest of it out! Can't wait to see you guys!

Charmain, what a talent. I love the elephant, so cute. It's great to find you out in the great big world wide web.
