Crafting: Parade of Elephants Baby Shower

A friend asked me to craft some decorations for an elephant themed baby shower … and this is what I came up with.

As a crafter, I always try to link to the exact place that I bought a specific template, fabric, yarn, or the name brand of a product; however, not all bloggers follow this method. After a googling and cursing websites, I went with Plan B – I traced an elephant and made my own template.

This template became the medium parade of elephants, the large parade of elephants, the small elephant mobile, the mother and baby elephant rosette, and an elephant mom to be pin.

My latest knitting projects all were baby gifts.  A cute little baby blanket and two animal pacifier clips.

Both the elephant and the lion are made from the Teeny Tiny Mochi Mochi book written by Anna Hrachovec .  Her tiny knits are so amazing.

The baby blanket is the Tweed Baby Blanketfrom Brooklyn Tweed (designed by Jared Flood).  It’s one of my most favorite baby blankets to knit because it always looks amazing no matter the color choice.
