I spotted a rather wonderful elephant making set in the craft shop whilst buying cross stitch and couldn't resist getting one, even though it is aimed at 10 year olds (and I have to say that I think my nine-year-old-niece-in-law could probably have made a better job of it than me!). I spent a happy Sunday afternoon making them.
The elephants remind me of the ones in the London elephant parade! And, as the pattern was very simple, I'm quite tempted to get some fabric in different colours, make some more and have my very own elephant parade!
(The kit by the way is made by Buttonbag crafts - they have some lovely things - I bought the peg dolls for my small cousin's birthday).
