I made my first stuffed animal yesterday! Benjamin wanted a red elephant, so I used a scrap of cute construction zone fabric for the front and red fleece for the back. It came out pretty cute, but I had a hard time getting the stuffing all the way down the trunk part, so the trunk is pretty floppy. Hence, the name "Floppy"... I learned a lesson about perfectionism last night. I was ready to scrap the elephant because it wasn't perfect, but Benjamin said he wanted it. He loved it, and insisted on sleeping with it last night. God reminded me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Even when I mess up and look pretty floppy myself, my Maker loves me and thinks I look just fine.
