Minky Stuffed Animals

I LOVE minky fabric. It is SOOOO ridiculously soft, and the perfect material for a little stuffed friend to be made out of. I first made a large minky owl, and since then I have tried making other animals. They are super cuddly, and oh so cute!!

I am always looking for inspiration and new ideas.  What minky stuffed animal would you like to see?

Crochet Patterns by 19 Elephants

I have now written my first three crochet patterns.  It is so fun to take something that is completely your own, and write down a pattern for it that you can then share with others!  All of my patterns are available in my etsy shop.  You can also purchase them at craftsy.  Craftsy is great because you can then instantly download the pattern and get started making your goodies right away instead of waiting for me to e-mail you the pattern.  The links for each pattern on craftsy are under the pictures.
