Don't you just love it when your friends clean out their bookshelf? A good friend of mine recently did just that and left me with a couple goodies! Of course, having stacks of fabric and a love for hand stitching, I literally decided to intercept a backlog of Christmas projects to make this little guy! Well, okay... I actually challenged myself to make this elephant because I had in fact tried in my past to stitch an elephant with a gusset, to no avail. So, having had some sewing lessons I thought I'd give it another go. Although the pattern recommends machine sewing, I did it the old fashion way and hand sewed the whole thing. I'm foreseeing a few more of these little guys!!
You can make this elephant with the softies kit by Therese Laskey.
