Elephant Softie - using a pattern

Okay, I wasn't going to post a project this week.  Buuuuuut I had to show off this cute little elephant that I sewed up.  It was included in the birthday tote that was for my for my niece.  

 There are tons of tutorials out on the net and there are too many cute ones to choose from as well.  Since I was short on time and needed to get this done quickly I decided on this one here.  Jess from Craftiness is not Optional has one of the cutest and easiest patterns available.  Go check out her page, she has some really awesome stuff and her blog is great.

Now on to the cuteness.....


Look who has the cutest tail ever.....


Big blue floppy ears to go with the cute tail!


There you have it.


This pattern only has two legs, but I will definitely have to try making one with 4 legs.

See, I told you it was going to be cute!
Thanks for stopping by, you have a fabulous week.

Its So Very Cheri
