I'm so excited about this little elephant! This is the first sewing pattern I've ever used! My mom came over on Mother's Day to teach me how to use a sewing pattern since all I've ever done with sewing is just have at it, or use tutorials, which is still a lot of fun... But I definatley wanted to get a little bit of skillage in pattern use. The first pic is her stuffed with fabric scraps, which did not work out too well. I couldn't get into her nook and cranies. So I washed and tore apart an old pillow when I got home from work tonight and restuffed her.

I made her using Simplicity Pattern 2613

I used a floral print I've had kicking it in my craft dungeon forever that I had absolutely no idea what to do with.

I gave her to dd as soon as I was done, and she called he beautiful.  Grin made mommy blush! I'm lucky she's only 2, so she didn't see all the imperfections!

I was wondering how that pattern was!  Turned out really cute!

Your mom is a dear to teach you new skills!

What a fun way for all the girls in the family to enjoy each other--and your dd is the proud new owner of something made by mommy!!

Thanks guys! I had a lot of fun making it, and the only part of the pattern I really had a problem with was the dart stitch. I'm still not even entirely sure what it was, but in my head I kind've have it as the butt stitch.

Just look as darts as a way to make straight things fit curvy things like a boob or a butt...in your case, probably the head had to be made round! Cheesy
