When I was growing up, my mom always had some project going on; whether it was sewing, embroidery, knitting, or just a fun craft for us kids to do, there was always a project. Needless to say I picked up a lot of different skills and hobbies as a result. Now I can sew my buttons back on, sew a quilt or make something that I saw in the store for half the price.
After that project, I was getting a little bit bored and needed something different. Well, these were too cute to pass up and were perfect for little babies or toddlers. I got the book at my local Hobby Lobby for about 5 dollars.
The elephant turned out a little wonky and the monkey really tiny, but still adorable and fun to play with. So cute and easy to make. I did have some trouble finding the eyes in my local craft stores, so I ended up getting them at etsy.com. The end product measures small, so if you want them bigger, use a bigger sized needle and yarn and vice versa. And most of all, if at first you don’t succeed, try again. The top is my first attempt at the elephant; the bottom, the second.
