The ugly Elephant

I found a pattern from McCall's for this cute little vintage style Elephant. I sewed it up and stuffed it, made the eyes out of felt and tied a little bow around it's neck and thought to myself "this is going to be really cute in Juliette's room". I walked out of my sewing room and approached my husband, "look at this elephant" I said. He got this disgusted look on his face and replied "IT'S HEAD IS HUGE!"
My face must have given it away because even though I questioned "is it ugly?" back to him in a nonchalant manner, He immediately realized I had made it. "oh um... NO! it's not ugly... um..." followed by more fumbling words. I guess you can't win 'em all.

Steve is SO wrong. Men just don't get it. The elephant is too cute. Where do you get your patterns? I'm too scared to sew anything that's not a straight line.

lol...I just have to say it IS cute, but it seems like it's trunk is a little short for it's head.:-) I know that is probably what the pattern told you to do, but maybe that's why your husband thought it's head was huge. Funny.

PS I predict that elephant will be an heirloom now!
