Elephant Bag

Even with help from the flickr group for Last-Minute Patchwork Gifts, I was confounded by the wee elephant, Peanut.

So I decided to make use of the templates for the elephant’s body and ears and put him on the front a bag I was making as a gift. I stuffed the body with a bit of fiberfill to make him stand out a bit from the body of the bag. I forgot to photograph the contrasting fabric on the inside of his ears. And I can’t do it now because it’s already wrapped!

He looks so cute! I’m going to make more. Definitely. LittlestCatHead has already requested one.
