Hello everyone!

This is the first time I've ever entered a challenge, so I'm really excited! (I was going to enter the Halloween challenge, until I realized that I hadn't gotten any good pictures, and I'd left the costume back in my hometown when I went back to school!)

So onto the craft project!

I decided that I was going to make my baby nephew some plush toys, but what would be good? My sister had designed the nursery with a "Noah's Ark" theme, and I'd already made him a blanket with jungle critters on it. What came to mind? Elephants! But not just any elephants, oh no no! PURPLE Elephants! There's nothing better than a purple pachyderm!

  Mommy

  Daddy

  One big happy family!


Thanks for looking! I hope you like them!

Thanks for all of the nice comments everyone!
They are very soft elephants. The fleece I used was really snuggly and their bodies are really squishy and nice.
