Why is he male and pink? I have no idea - he just seemed like a male to me inspite of his brightness and flowery ears ;-)
This is my first dimensional (read: not flat) softie.
I used a pattern - Simplicity #2921 which was a pain in my butt; but after a lot of yelling and shaking the fabric in anger, and help from my mom when she could stop laughing at me, he turned out pretty awesome. If I am to be completely honest, it was def. more my impatience and mistakes than the pattern being annoying - I am just used to online tutorials with more steps and pictures.
He definitely needs a snuggly friend in green - but for the safety of that elephant and my own sanity, I will wait a bit to try making one again. ;-)
Why is he named Titus? Elphant Titus... Elephantitis... hehe...
