    So cute! Very simple question - do you make them to sell? It's very frustrating for me. You see, I know how to do the stitches but I've never learned to read patterns. My brain requires being shown how to do it. I've nearly driven myself crazy trying to figure out a pattern, then had someone show me and I found it very simple.
    Anyway, I collect elephants and don't have one like yours. If you DO sell them, I'd like one all in 'elephant gray.'
    Anyway, great job! Live it!

    I discovered you can make multiple ones in all different colors because I didn't have any teal, so I used red instead
