hello wonderful crafsterians!
This is my first posted project. be kind!

awhile ago, I found a post by wibit for a cute little crochet elephant. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206703.0

I thought it was cute...but who would I make an elephant for?

then it hit me like that 4th shot of jagger I probably shouldnt have accepted...

pink wooly elephants for all the lushes in my life!



I hope you like 'em.

bottom's up!  Wink

thanks you guys! Cheesy

I used Patons "Classic Wool Merino" in...(I think) Old Rose.

I crocheted them (and made the legs a little longer), and then threw them in the washer with a couple towels to felt them up.
after that, I stitched on the details with black floss and painted on some rosy cheeks. and tossed glitter everywhere. Tongue

oh! and I added a little martini glass charm to the trunk.

Thank you for telling us how you did it and for sharing your work as well. I've never used wool before because I can never find it, but I would sure like to felt something on day Smiley

its actually just some random batiked? fabric with a dice pattern that I had laying around.
it would be pretty fun as a blanket though!
