Not sure where to start this. A few years ago a friend of mine gave me a stuffed elephant pattern. I put it away, to make, later. Then at a Christmas party, where we participated in a white elephant gift exchange, one of the kids at the party had a "white elephant" made from this same pattern. It was so cute, I decided that I would try to make one.
This was my first try. I think the trunk should be a little thicker, but I like it very much.
I haven't quite finished it -- I need to sew up the back still and the eyes are a little crooked. I plan to make more.
