Happy Elephant Family - Toy Sewing Pattern

Every March is National Craft Month, be extra crafty for the rest of the days until end of the month to celebrate the month specially meant for us. I am hoping to share more different crafts so you will have more choice to select. I am working all the best I could, juggling the time between a day business that has nothing to do with craft and 2 kids running around at home, also a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland.

As you may have noticed, I love to sew toys for my kids. Seeing them hugging the toys lovingly is all I want as a return of my late night crafting. This time is a set of 4 elephant family members, I called them “The Happy Elephant Family”, which resemble the size of my family, Dad-Mom-Daughter-Son. Looking at the wild life photo of the elephant colony inspired me to come out with this pattern. I was brought up in the accustomed way like many of you, Father is always the leader and Mother is always the care provider. I hope my kids will follow us until they are big enough to set up their own family and this is how the family branches out.

Today is also my dad’s 70th birthday. My dad is a traditional Chinese man, he is the man who spends his whole life working so hard to bring 4 of us up in the best way he can afford to do. The man who spends all his hard earn money building a good family foundation, but also the one who forgotten to plan for himself, his retirement and his medical bill. The man still working all his best for us including repairing our house plumbing, electrical appliances, build us furniture & fish pond, plant & harvest our favorite fruits. Happy Birthday Daddy! You are always our hero and we will always love you.
