I promised details on the little white elephant I made for a white elephant party. It was actually really easy!
I was making this little deer from the free pattern found here via happy together (from the book Palm-Size Softies), and thought I could just change it a little to make an elephant.
I used the original body pieces but hand drew a simple trunk pattern and oversized ears. Instead of the deer tail I sewed on some tattered scraps to look like an elephant tail. Then I replaced the eyes with embroidered dots.
So, next time you’re not sure what to bring to a white elephant party, this will take you about half and hour. I think the deer would be a fun thing to bring also.
Love that book!!! I’ve made several little deer, they’re adorable!
omg that deer is so adorable. I can’t take it.
