"Toot!" says the Elephant Embellishment

Prepping for a move is hard work.  Back while we still lived in Evanston I spent so much time packing that I didn't have a lot of time to craft.  BOOOOOO!  I decided to take a packing break and make a little applique.

E is for Elephant is a darling little pattern. I love how the ear is a second attached piece.  I used a size E (3.5 mm) crochet hook and KnitPicks Comfy Worsted in Whisker (3 g, 6.5 yards) for the elephant body and Planetarium for the eye french knot.  It felt SO good to pick up a crochet hook and some yarn and create something darling.

Why bother making appliques if there is nothing to add them too?  I suppose I don't see a problem having a bunch of random appliques laying around.  They can always be added to a simple baby hat to make it extra special.  Having some of these embellishments in my knitting box may inspire me for other projects.

A tiny bit of blocking was all that was required to get the trunk to stand up at attention.  Isn't he darling?  What would you put him on?
