Tilly and Tommy Elephant
Now that Halloween is over it’s officially time to start thinking about the holiday season! Last year I decided to make several Christmas gifts, in lieu of purchasing. There is this personal connection and satisfaction that can only be felt when you’ve invested time and care into creating something with your own hands.
What I discovered last year is that making gifts takes a lot of time! I generally allow a couple of months to complete the gifts. So, now is the time to get started!
Two of my favorite gifts that I made last year were boy / girl elephants inspired by the Tilly and Tommy Elephant pattern created by RetroMama found Here.
They are a modern take on the traditional stuffed elephant with the clean, simple lines and non-traditional fabric patterns.
They are perfect for little hands to cuddle with or little heads to lay on!
