Laaaaaadies and Gentleman!

Presenting Peanut, the wee elephant!

Pattern: Peanut, the wee elephant from Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts
Fabric: Peas and Carrots by American Jane
Notes: After I got over my initial confusion this guy came together quickly and easily. I probably should have done a less busy pattern for the body because it makes it difficult to see his eyes. I wanted to glue the eyes before sewing but I only had Fray-Check and it didn't work. I would also top-stitch the ears if I make this again. The pattern is from the 4-8 hour section of the book. I think it took me maybe 4 hours to make this.
