Hi!

I just finished pattern testing for Angry Angel (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319248.0) and I thought I would share my finished elephant. She put together a simply gorgeous pattern for Flora the elephant - she reminded me so much of the Humphrey's Corner elephants I just had to volunteer!

I used slightly fluffy wool for her body - it was all I had in the right shade and luckily it worked out okay. I also added a centre to the flower because I found these tiny pompoms which matched her dress and had to use one! Cheesy

Anyhow - here is my attempt - I haven't named her yet:



Thank you to Angry Angel for letting me test out - I really enjoyed it! Smiley
I'd love to know what people think! Smiley

Too cute. I know my dd who loves elephants would like to have one like this but I don't knit/crochet.

Thank you!  Smiley
I didn't really crochet until just over a year ago - I mostly taught myself using books, youtube and a few consultations with my grandmother! It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be...

You did a brilliant job, thank you so much for testing! I love the details you added and the fluffy yarn makes her extra cuddly.
