Eloise the Elephant

In my quest for "handmade perfection" over "homemade crap", sometimes I have to stop and decide where the line of perfection vs. good enough lies.

I have a particularly hard time making stuffed animals look picture perfect.
But, I've decided that this elephant is good enough. Now I need to accept and appreciate "good enough" instead of just tolerate it.

This elephant is from One Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins. The title was a little misleading because I only had a small amount of scraps left of this fabric, but it was just enough for the elephant. The book overall has a lot of projects that I'm excited to make. Very diverse and well rounded.
