An elephant for Easter

For a while now I have been thinking about how I can make my toys baby friendly by changing their button eyes for something stitched. I think I have solved the dilemma in making an elephant for my eight month year old niece for Easter! I stitched a sleepy eye with long eyelashes and I’m so pleased with how it turned out. What do you think? I love hearing what you think and if you could pop a comment below I would be very grateful!

Sleepy Elephant



  1. Gosh that purple felt is such a beautiful colour. I think the sleepy eye looks great. You could even try doing the eye in the contrasting blue colour to match the ear perhaps?

  2. Its lovely! I always have trouble making eyes that are suitable for kids. I usually use safety eyes but sometimes they aren’t right for the project.

  3. Gorgeous, reminds me of an elephant that we used to play with at my grans house when we were kids x
    PS. What lens have you used to take the photo? (photography newbie here 🙂 )
