I made this little guy this past summer, he was my second attempt at making a stuffed animal and I used a pattern this time. (My first attempt can be seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=316557.0) The pattern is from the book S.E.W by Dianna Rupp. She has two sizes and this is the smaller size. I made the larger elephant for my boyfriend's niece for xmas, but didn't take any photos before I gave it to her.




This shows the embroidered year on his back leg and the tail I braided (this wasn't part of the pattern, I had trouble with the original tail so I came up with this.) It also shows that I needed to practice sewing up the openings, which I've gotten better at.


I embroidered the eyes, the pattern uses buttons for eyes.


One last shot just for fun. I love those ears.

Thank you all for your kind comments! I think I'm starting to get the hang of making stuffed animals.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

This guy is about 6 inches tall and the big one I mentioned that I didn't get a pic of was about 12 inches tall.
