Usually, I become so excited about completing a project that I will work on it relentlessly until it is finished. However, recently my mind has been swarming with so many ideas for crafty projects that I will begin one project and quickly become distracted by another project. I guess you could call it Crafty ADD. I found myself with so many unfinished projects that I vowed that I would not start another one until the rest of the things I had started were completed.
Ellsworth the Elephant was born out of my desire to create a taggie style, stuffed animal for Baby C. Initially, he was going to be much smaller. However, I had Mr. W have my original pattern enlarged at our local copy store. He is approximately 17" by 13". I used quilting cottons on the front and minky on the back. I love the knot that I added at the end of his tail. I also used fleece interfacing in his ear, which I think will withstand many hours of play. I love the finished product, and Baby C seems quite fond of him as well.
