Ellie Girl Elephant

Hello Crafters, hope you day is bright and crafty!

I have a knitted creature to share with you today, a knitted elephant named Ellie.
I have made it last fall and donated to our annual 
Christmas bake sale at work as a raffle prize.

Ellie was made with Cascade 220 and Cascade 220 Sport weight yarn, 100% wool.
The pattern can be purchased at Little Cotton Rabbits, here.

The head, ears, body, arms, legs/shoes were knitted separately.
They are then stuffed with fiberfill and sewn together.

The sweater dress is detachable. I love the little chubby Mary-Jane shoes. 
The shoes are a little fiddly to make but they are just too darn cute.

My co-worker who won this creature is expecting a baby soon.
If she has a baby boy, I will make a matching elephant boy for her!

I enjoyed knitting Ellie.
I hope this post gives you some knitting inspiration.
Whatever you do, happy crafting!
