An elephant for Easter

For a while now I have been thinking about how I can make my toys baby friendly by changing their button eyes for something stitched. I think I have solved the dilemma in making an elephant for my eight month year old niece for Easter! I stitched a sleepy eye with long eyelashes and I’m so pleased with how it turned out. What do you think? I love hearing what you think and if you could pop a comment below I would be very grateful!

  1. Gosh that purple felt is such a beautiful colour. I think the sleepy eye looks great. You could even try doing the eye in the contrasting blue colour to match the ear perhaps?

    Its lovely! I always have trouble making eyes that are suitable for kids. I usually use safety eyes but sometimes they aren’t right for the project.

    I think even a few more lashes wouldn’t go amiss…
