I picked a cute pink owl print and a bit of purple for the inside of her ears. I opted for an "Amish elephant" (i.e. without eyes) because I think buttons would have looked much better than an embroidered set of eyes, but buttons and newborns don't mix. I didn't LOVE making this, but I think that's more because I don't like sewing stuffed things closed rather than that I didn't like the pattern. I'm not 100% convinced I put the ears in the best place, but she's pretty cute anyway.

Maria got her gifts this past weekend, and I hope she enjoys them. Lizzie was pretty excited about the elephant since she was talked out of buying a little pachyderm just a few days before. I love it when I hear "oh wait, you MADE this???" - that's a pretty big compliment!
