Elephant amigurumi

Elephant amigurumi

Say hello to Gustav, the highly skilled balancing elephant. He is the only circus elephant we ever want to meet or see in action. With animal circuses going out of favor (for good reason!), this little amigurumi is the perfect substitute because he is doing what he was created to do. He won’t survive in the wild where all real elephants should be. 😉
