  1. Hey…I am new to this as of five mins ago. I need help finishing an idea I have for my sons party. He loves elephants, so I decided to throw him a blue elephant party. So I decided to hand make elephants out of velt so the kids can accessorise and put them on their shirts. I can find great stuff for girls but nothing for boys. Any ideas on how I can find hats, ties, earrings, tatoo… Ect.
