Elephant felt hoop

A friend-of-a-friend was robbed and lost many decor items from her apartment, so a bunch of us decided to help replace them. She loves elephants and pink colors. I am doing a series of hoops for her with embroidery, but whipped up one really fast so she has something to hang on her bare walls. Scraps of wool felt I had were all luckily the right size and I made this in one evening.

Oops, just realized, when previewing my post, that I need to go back and adjust where the hoop hardware is! Has to hang correctly!

That is so kind of you to make this for your friend. What kind of creep steals wall decor?? Thank you for including your glasses for size reference. Did you stuff some cotton in the heart? It looks puffy and cute. I like that your elephant has legs that, from the picture, are slightly larger on the bottom giving that extra cute factor.

So far she has been given lots of statues and such, but no wall decor, so I am glad I am working on hoops. I believe there was an ex roommate involved in the crime, for some revenge for being kicked out for not paying rent…

The heart is just puffy as it was thick wool felt, and I stitched it a bit smaller than it was cut, so it puffed up.

The legs were a happy accident!

I know she will appreciate your efforts. Horrible event, but the love is epic! Well done!
