hi, i am almost finished with my elephant amigurumi.  so besides needing to stuff the elephant, I have a question, no where in the directions does it say how to put the pieces together.  I have ears to attach to the head & body (one piece), the trunk, the feet, and arms. 

  • Do i use the main color yarn, since it's over all pretty much one color, or use something else.
  • I've also noticed that, there might be some bigger gaps in my elephant, how do i fix that after I've finished the piece?  I don't want to redo the pieces cuz well this whole thing was hard...well it's my first amigurumi.& my first crochet piece.


I'm excited to stuff it, and make it into a real amigurumi.  It's name is Ellie. 

She's a Paul Frank inspired creation.

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

thanks for the website.  It totally helped me put together my ellie.

you can view her at http://itscute-etsy.blogspot.com

i'm thinking about putting some clothes on her due to the fact that she's a bit holey & exposing her stuff.  a lovely sweater vest...

she's cute! good idea about the vest...

if future ellies (ellie's babies?) want a less holey look, a smaller hook would solve that...eek i hope you take that the way it's meant!!
