Many people have a favorite animal that they collect. In a bunch of the craft shows I've been participating in, the one animal that I've gotten the most requests for over and over is an elephant. I finally had some free time to experiment and this little guy is the result!
This cute little guy can be used in a variety of ways, either as a pincushion to help with your future crafting projects, as a paperweight in an office, a desk buddy, a toy, or just as something cute to display on your mantle or shelf.
This elephant is 3 inches high and 3.5 inches wide, or, in real life terms, smaller than an apple, and larger than an egg. He is made from 100% cotton yarn, in your choice of color. He is stuffed with acrylic polyfill stuffing, and has a metal washer sewn into his bottom so he will always stand up, and his eyes are plastic safety eyes. All appendages are sewn on securely, but he is not meant to be played with roughly or given to the dog to chew on.
Minibytes are made of cotton yarn, which means that they can be hand washed and left out to air dry. Please don't put them in the dryer or else they will become very dizzy.
