Elephant, Clown and Dave

The elephant was a little complicated, but finally finished it (the fabric was so hard to work with). The clown was my very favorite to make. Her name is Daisy (my husband named her.)
There is a story behind Daisy. When my grandson Jakob was 6 months old he received a cute little clown from my aunt (from a yard sale). My husband named him Dave. Every time he handed it to Jakob he would call it Dave. Well Dave was his first word. Over the years Dave got worn out. We had washed him many times. He had a music box inside and we took it out so we could put him in the washer. I sewed him a lot and put new pom-pom's on his cap. When Jakob was 9 Lori went to a big sale and found another Dave. That was pretty amazing since we had looked everywhere for a new one. His name became Steve. Now Jakob is too big for them but Lori still has them both. Thomas decided this is Dave's girlfriend Daisy.Isn't that the most precious thing you have ever seen.

Cute story.

Is the elephant made out of that stretchy minky stuff? That is very difficult to sew. But he turned out cute.

Spenser has a skirt made from the same rainbow fabric.
