This softie was a gift to Bailey on her birthday.  Unfortunately, Elodie the Elephant hatched out of the wrapping paper to hear “no like it” as B promptly handed Elodie over to me.  Apparently she is now “Mommy’s”.   Which is okay, because I love Elodie!!  She is adorable, pigeon-toed with massive ears and a shy face. 

The pattern is from 101 Great Ways to Sew a Metre and was fairly simple to make.  The fabric is leftover from one of my favorite vintage sheets on ebay, with soft grey velvet for the under ears.

I hope Bailey one day learns to love Elodie, but for now the sweet softie can receive cuddles from me.
