Name: Katie Project: Happy Elephant Pull Toy

An elephant never forgets and there's no forgetting this Elephant Pull Toy which reader, Katie, submitted. Jump below for details...

Explain how Amy Butler inspired this entry.:
Sometimes I think the fabric at the chain stores hasn't changed since I used to go there as a kid with my mom. The selection kills my DIY spirit. But Amy Butler's fabric makes me think, "Oh boy, what else can I make?!" I also love her use of gray as a neutral. Perfect elephant color!

How did you make your project and what items did you use?:
I made this little plush elephant with a pattern I designed myself. Eyes are embroidered. Wheels are poplar dowels (from Lowes) that I rubbed with organic food grade flaxseed oil.

Fabric is from Crafty Planet in Minneapolis (awesome store!) Cotton twine stitched into foot seams holds elephant in place.
