Because I never have patterns to follow when I make toys, it is a little risky to make a large toy. I want to avoid disappointment after spending many hours on a new project of course.
But I really needed to make this elephant to go with the scene I was working on. And my elephant needed to be big. I also wanted it to be cute and have a bit of character. I made the body rather short and made him sit down.
I had an idea of how many stitches to cast on to start, but I was a little nervous when I was sewing it up.
I haven’t made a black leopard yet. I found some big cats are difficult to make, and I feel I need a bit more planning.
What do you think?
Figures without shoes is a bit challenging, but I think he looks fine.
I like this story and, I enjoyed making many animal characters.
