Hello my fellow craftsters.   Smiley  I am looking to recreate a plushie that I found the pattern for online.  However, this is my first ever plushie but I just can't seem to figure out how I would stitch on the ears...What would you do?

Would you stitch them on last or would you somehow attach them in the middle of sewing?  I'm just so confused! 

Your help would be lovely & oh so appreciated!

Here is the pattern -

& here is where Cicadastudio noted it was a free pattern & good luck since she wouldn't be able to make a tutorial most likely.

(note, I'm not interested in the tusks)

Sew the ears together.  Where the head meets the body, sandwich the ears in between that seam.  The ears will be inside the body.  You will be looking at the raw edge of the ears.  When you sew the head to the body, you will catch the ears in that seam.  The "fuzzy" line is the raw edge of the ear.  I hope this makes sense.  If you stitch the ears on last, make sure you roll the raw edges to the inside of the ears, and then whip stitch the ears on.

I think that does make sense.  I'll probably will understand it more when I'm not battling being sick. lol.  Wink  Thank you so much & the picture helps lots!  I'm more of a visual learner.

Yes, I'm a visual learner too.  When you sew the elephant together, do so wrong side out.  Meaning, you will have the ugly side of the fabric looking at you.  The ears will be right side out, meaning, the pretty side of the fabric will be looking at you.  Make sure you leave yourself a hole to turn the elephant right side out through.  You will also stuff him through this hole.
