Mirabelle's Heffalump

Since I had bought a book of knitted toy patterns for the sock monkey swap, I decided to make an elephant for my neighbor's first birthday. Later, I found out that her birthday party theme was owls, so I probably should have made this, but whatev.

Her bedroom is chocolate and pink, so I knitted this shy, little heffalump.

There were lots of fiddly little pieces, shaping, color changes, stuffing, and duplicate stitch.

I also added a little, braided tail although the pattern didn't call for one.

Hope she likes it.

It was cute before, eyeless and tail-less. Now it's killing me...
