I've just started sewing and this is my first stuffed animal for my first granddaughter.  I had a lot of fun making it, though I made some mistakes along the way.  I used a pattern found in a sewing book I bought from Amazon.

There is no right or wrong, when it comes to making art. Making sure that you have fun is the most important part. -Mickey Mouse

I love this! It would be nice for a girl or a boy in another color. It looks like you did a great job.

Thank you everyone Smiley  I got the pattern from the book SEW (Sew Everything Workshop) by Diana Rupp.  The Complete Step-by-Step Beginner's Guide.  Page 217 Unforgettable Elephant.  You can actually make a mommy and a baby together if you want to.  Fun project and yes, you could do boy, girl, or neutral <3
