Peanut – the wee elephant!

peanut the wee elephantI finally had a chance to make Peanut, the wee elephant! The pattern is from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson.  This little guy isn’t perfect (it’s a good thing you can’t see his under side!), but he turned out pretty darn cute. The embroidered letter “E” stands for Evan, Rance’s newborn nephew.

P.S.  If you have this book and are thinking of making this elephant, the first part of the sewing instructions is a bit confusing! Read the comments on  this discussion thread and it should help clarify how to sew the belly. Otherwise you might end up sewing the legs together like I did the first time around!
