Pattern try: stuffed elephant!

I know… but I couldn’t pass up the 20% etsy coupon Kim over at retromama was offering lol! And I wanted a new pattern, so there you go!

eco-friendly stuffed elephant made from reclaimed fabrics

I was all happy to make something new, but I’m not sure I’m liking the way I made it, with 2 different fabrics for the body.  I had a really hard time stuffing it to my liking (and this one is not there yet). What do you guys think?? a keeper?! maybe I should try it with only 2 fabrics instead of 3?

This little guy is made from a men’s pants, shirt and ears from a necktie. I hand embroidered the eyes. Now it’s listed in my shop… so I’ll see from there too.

I’ve also made 2 doggies since I had sold the last one🙂

Eco stuffed dog, made from upcycled materials

This boy is made from 2 men’s pants, shirt and ears from a necktie (it’s a close cousin to the previous elephant!) it’s listed here.

This girlie, Oh I really like this one!  is made from denim pants (jeans), 2 women’s shirt and a fabric remnant. She features on one side a pocket from the shirt🙂 she’s right here.

All of those stuffed toys are made using retromama patterns, you can get your own right here!

Un p’tit nouveau dans la famille! Mais je ne suis pas sûre si je vais en refaire d’autres… Je pense que je devrais l’essayer avec juste 2 tissus différents au lieu de 3. Il est fait d’un pantalon pour homme, chemise et oreilles faites à partir d’une cravate. Même chose pour le chien suivant. La chienne est faite de jeans, 2 chemises pour dame et un reste de tissu. Elle a aussi, sur un côté, une poche qui vient de la chemise🙂 Vous pouvez les trouver juste ici!
