Old Jumpers, New Elephants
This is the fifth year that I've made a batch of elephants for the school fete. Sometimes I've made them from donated fleece, or chenille, but these ones are old woollen jumpers and tops. They are so enjoyable to make and each one is slightly different. The close up photos show how the ears are attached - I promised to show this last year but the elephants marched out the door before I got around to taking photos and I had to wait until I made some more. By the time Lily reaches grade 6 we'll have been through 13 fetes. I wonder if I'll still be making elephants in 2021. It's looking likely.
