A co-worker of mine was having a baby girl. She said that she wanted her baby’s room to have elephants as a sign of good luck. The elephant is associated with Buddha and the Indian deity Ganesh and can be used to symbolize power, wisdom, strength, protection of the home, fertility, and general good luck.
The office decided to have a baby shower for welcoming the new baby. Everyone bought or donated to welcome the baby. However, I wanted to make a custom gift for the baby. I crocheted a baby blanket and this cute little elephant doll for her baby girl.
The baby’s mother was in tears as she opened each present and mine as well.
May this elephant bless and bring good luck to her and her family.
