Anyway, since I am striving to be a lemonade kinda gal I decided to make two elephants instead, which was a good thing, because the second one was decidedly better then the first one.
I left off the buttons for the eyes, because the flowers were enough. I also I knew for the second one that I needed to make the seam allowance on the trunk as small as possible in order to give the elephant the biggest trunk possible and I added a seam to give the legs more stability.
Isn't it beautiful?
My daughter has no preference for either, instead she is grateful of her every growing 'My Mummy Made It' collection. My son has requested one for himself, albeit in not so 'girly' colours :-)
