As soon as I say it I knew I had to try and make at least one for a elephant mad friend of mine for christmas, and maybe more for the myriad of small children my friends seem to be sprouting :) Especially since its for charity too! Janet is aiming to raise £1000 in time for christmas. What a great aim!
I've never made a softie before, they always seem very fiddly compared to long smooth clothing seams. I will let you know how I go!
