it's an awful drawing, but here's what i'm picturing:

cut the first two pieces out of cardboard or posterboard or something similar (thin and sturdy) and then attach the two together in the middle with a "butterfly tack"...

i honestly googled everything i could think of to describe the tack, to no avail. it's like a thumbtack, but instead of having one sturdy post, it has two thin metal posts that are bendable. you would put holes in the cardboard, then push the tack through and bend the posts to opposite sides, thus keeping the two pieces together, but with some room for them to move back&forth like scissors!

I used your pattern! Thank you so much for posting it.  Cheesy

It was a teeny gift for my roommate who loves Firefly (in which Kaylee is obsessed with strawberries).

We're going out for my friend's birthday tonight, so I thought I'd whip her up a sweet little present!

His trunk is unusually large and phallic.... haha. My bad!

I used a pattern that I found on CPC, except that I modified the arms a little bit.

LINK: http://members.aol.com/SAG55/elephant.html

Rnd 9: Sc in 3 sc, sc in first ch that begins the arm, sc last sc of arm, sc in 5 sc, sc in first ch that begins the 2nd arm, sc last sc of 2nd arm, sc in 4 sc. (16)
Rnd 10: sc2tog under each arm (14)
Rnd 11: sc2tog under each arm (12)
Rnd 12-15: Work even on 12 sc.

I've never written out directions before, so hopefully it makes sense! Feel free to ask me any questions.

I was in desperate need of a new wallet... and allow me to be the 12057234th person to say this: THANK YOU for the amazing pattern! I followed it exactly, except that I used cardboard (instead of interfacing) and I put a zipper in between the two "money pocket" pieces to hold change.

I'm really proud of this!

Here she is:

Progress report:

- I'm about 1/2 way through the shrug that I'm knitting for my xmas gift to myself.
- I started a pair of socks for my dad on the weekend (it's slow going - I'm about to turn the heel on the first one).
- Friends of mine were having a big housewarming party and I was planning to make them a pair of xmas stockings... but they've canceled the party.  Sad Boo. I'm still going to make the stockings (I have the most beautiful fabric) but I'm going to give them for my family gift exchange, probably along with one or two other small crafted items.

Ideas needed (help!):

I'm still looking for an idea for something small to make for my Aunt. When I first started knitting a couple of years ago, she gifted me all of her old needles for my birthday. I want to knit (or crochet) her something simple and Christmas-y... maybe an ornament? Can anyone suggest some patterns/tutorials?

My older brother and I have decided to "try each other's crafts" this year. He is going to sew something for me and I am going to carve/build something for him (he's a carpenter by trade). The problem is that I have noooo idea where to start! Do any of you have good ideas for a beginner woodworking project?

Thanks in advance. Smiley
