We’ve said our house is a little like a ‘Zoo’ sometimes and now we’ve joined the circus!
Effy and Mimz are playing jacks and entertaining crowds of excited fans for peanuts. (well, they don’t actually HAVE any peanuts yet but I’m working on that)
I bought the pattern on Etsy HERE and it was very well done and easy to follow. I was so excited to find a nice red fluffy throw at the thrift store to launder and cut up for the elephant. I was excited until I tried to sew it with the sewing machine. I got an ERROR 6….which must be the most serious error EVAH on my brand new sewing machine. So I rebooted it and sewed most of the elephant by hand.
I used some gray felt for Mimz the Mouse and that was much easier to work with.
a lot of hard work FUN!
I love the results and now we have a few more characters for the ‘ZOO’! hahaha!
Have you ever had FUN that seemed more like WORK?
I’m joining Ivy and Elephants for
‘What’s it Wednesday’ of course and
Katherine’s Corner for Favorite Things!
I’m joining the Patriotic party HERE, too!
Throw PEANUTS if you love these guys!!!
Looks like they could use some gumballs, too!
