I went to a shower for baby Gianna yesterday. It was a lovely tea party shower.
I made her a little stuffed elephant & wrapped it in this cupcake paper. I've had this paper for a couple years & hadn't been willing to use it. Now, I finally decided to open it, and start using it!
This is Peanut, the Wee Elephant. This pattern (like a few other adorable ones I have tried) is by Hilary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls. It was a fast little project. I'm pretty happy with the way she turned out, too. The pattern is in a great little book, Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts. The directions don't explain parts of it very well (at least, for me, it was confusing). But, once I got past the beginning, it was pretty easy to figure out, even without the directions.
