Introducing Winston- the little grey elephant.
And let me just say, he is one photogenic little guy.
Don’t you agree? Sometimes I think my little creations are cute in person, but I feel like I just can’t get a good picture of them. Of course, I always tell my little creations not to worry, it’s just evidence of my bad photo taking skills, and not a poor reflection on their looks. ;-D However, I was pretty please with Winston’s photo shoot!
Standing he measures about 6 1/4 inches tall, sitting he’s about 4 inches.
The pattern I use to make him is here where you can get it for free. While I did followed the pattern mostly, I did do a few things a little different.
The few changes I made: I single crocheted all the way around the ears after I finished crocheting them (I felt like it gave them a smoother, cleaner edge), and I used knotted yarn for the eyes instead of puffy paint like the pattern suggested. I also added the patches of fabric on the ears and feet as my little own touch.
Altogether, this was a nice, quick little project to do. If you decide to make one, I hope you enjoy it!
