I did tap into my inner craftiness to work on a fun little project though - my very first stuffed animal. He was made for a baby boy due in September. I, of course, made a few changes to the pattern. I shortened his arms by an inch (so he looked more proportional), rounded off his head a little (originally it had an odd peak) and did embroidered eyes rather than felt or safety ones.
I'm supper pleased with how this little elephant came out - he definitely won't be my last stuffed animal! (I've already spent way too much time online looking for cute plushie patterns... bad Jenny!)
