Older Elephant Lovers Will Adore This Too!
This darling patchwork elephant is so cute on its own. Or, bundle it with a matching baby quilt. The new parents are sure to love your thoughtfulness.
It will be charming made from scraps waiting to be discovered in your stash. Or, use leftovers from a quilt project so the quilt and elephant match. It can also be made from solid pieces instead of patchwork.
Choose between three options for the trunk: curly, low or raised. While buttons can be used for the eyes, they can be satin stitched in black thread instead. Or use safety eyes as specified by the pattern.
The finished elephant, from Ric Rac Sews, is approx. 10 inches tall.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
