* Update - Thanks to the first four speedy volunteers I now have testers! *

Hi, I've just written up this pattern and I'd love to have a few people test it. I need people to be as nit-picky as possible so I can sort out any problems. Please PM me if you're interested, any skill level as I'm not the best judge of how difficult it is, so it would be useful to find out.

Well, here she is:

She ends up about 5" tall and uses only a small amount of yarn, so I don't think she'll take too long to make.

How cute! Kind of reminds me of the Humphrey's Corner elephants Smiley
I have sent you a PM about testing!

If you still need testers I would like to try it.  Never did it before but would like to learn how to test a pattern/  Mary

Sorry, I already have four testers, but I'm hoping to do more patterns in the future. Check out sherettehippot's elephant here:

Rather then start a whole new post to show off my Flora, I thought I'd just put it here:

Her name is Ensign Lulu Pegg and she is an engineer on the Federation starship USS Noah.  Smiley  I used yarn I had lying around which is why she's brown rather then gray.  I think she's adorable and I was highly influenced by being at Dragon*Con this weekend when choosing the dress and tights colors.

The pattern was great, easy to understand and I highly recommend it!

She looks great! Indian elephants are quite brown, so that works. And I love the red flower, very flattering!
