Here is my latest pipe cleaner animal, a baby elephant! She measures 3.5 inches tip to tip and 2 inches tall.  She came out a little larger than I had intended, and I ended up using all of my gray pipe cleaners to make her, about 15 of them! She's also a bit heavy... it's amazing how all those featherweight pipe cleaners can add up in weight!  I used plastic beads for her eyes and a little pink felt for her mouth.  The pink portion of the ears are also pipe cleaners!
