Quote of the Day:
There are all kinds of free patterns out there on the internet, especially on Pinterest. I have found several that I like and have used over and over again. I just found this new one.
It's a stuffed elephant. It's very simple and was never meant to stand. I think it's very cute. What you usually have to do is print the pieces and then match them together to get the right pieces together.
This is my first attempt. I got the idea because I have a lot of left over Crimson Tide Alabama material and I looked it up and that mascot is an elephant. So I went looking for the free pattern.
I have to say that sometimes you get what you pay for. What you can see in the picture is there is a seam across the center mass of the elephant. That makes lining up printed material difficult. So I taped together two pieces of printing paper and then traced the two pieces onto my paper to make one body piece. I think that will work better for what I intend to do next and for the rest of my Alabama material.
It has pattern pieces to make eyes, but I chose buttons. I have lots and lots of buttons.
Thank you for letting me share.
