I love this little guy, even if he does hit the bottle a little hard. He took about 3 hours start to finish. It's my own design, and I plan on making a lot more! He doesn't have a name yet.



I've never really felted anything before because I've been too afraid of over felting. I don't have a washing machine, but I figured out that if you use the dough kneading hook in your Kitchen Aid mixer, it works out about the same  Tongue

The dough kneading hook?  That is a really creative use of kitchen appliances for crafting!  Also, that is the cutest elephant I've ever seen! I love it!

They should use this as a slogan to sell Kitchen Aid to crafters. I'd buy it!
You're elephant is adorable, I love that he actually has tusk, that's awesome. I'd love a pattern, a friend of mine adores elephants and he'd love one of these.

TOO CUTE/COOL! I entered the contest two. I couldn't decide between two names so I kinda put both of them. ^^; They're names from my favorite book. And if you don't like those, I could give you about 7 more: Carlisle, Jasper, Emmet, Mike, James, Laurent, Charlie, and Eric. ALL the guys names in my book. =)
