Any ideas on where to get small but strong magnets?
 Huh

Lee Valley Distibuting sells really strong earth magnets. I think they are online also!

I've also made a fabric purse in which I sewed one magnet on each side to create a clasp using the magnets I bought at Lee Valley and I put a doubble layer of fabric so that it wouldn't rip, but the magnets still held strong. ***crosses fingers*** the fabric hasn't ripped so far!

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, it's not your fault.
They won't take you to the vet,
You're probably not their favorite pet.
You may not be a bed of roses
And you're no friend to those with noses

I made one of those out of grey fleece, and it came out absolutly adorable! (Complete with a little pink heart embroidered onto him for a friend who lives far away)

I finally made the elephants. I used some left over grey fleece that I had form another stuffie project. I started out with the pattern the actaul size you showed it becasue I wans;t sure I'd have enough and my little baby elephant was born. And with some careful manuvering and resizing and pinning made her a mother elephant. The only problem I had is the legs go way wide with fleece.  I guess becasue it streches so much. So I put some gathers in it between the legs and fixed teh issue.
I can't wait to give them to my aunt. I'm going to make them little blankets for cover thier backs and I have yet to but something to glue them too so they'll stand up all the time. I'm thinking a wooden award plaque and some hot glue. Smiley I added tusks to my momma. Smiley


Here's the baby on my hand for scale.

I so love these little guys! Thanks so much for sharing this pattern!
Oh and if these strech the borad I'm so sorry! I thought I resized them.
