The elephants I make are a wonderful combination of repurposed wool sweaters for their bodies and delightfully soft cashmere for their ears. They are such a fun addition to any home - in a nursery keeping a watchful eye, as a new friend for an imaginative child, or even a whimsical pillow for your favorite chair.
This elephant is light gray lambswool with a pastel striped cashmere ear. (Check out the cool stitching on the back that was part of the original sweater.) The eye is handstitched in place and the little tail is a cute twist of cotton embroidery floss. There's a heart stitched on the back as a reminder that you are loved.
