UPDATE BELOW-Hello Cuties, I wanted to show you this little set. I made it out of a fat quarter and it is the first time I made the burp like this. Does it look okay to leave the edge serged or overlocked like this?





I also wanted to make a little stuffed elephant to complete the set. I would be making it in this cotton fabric, so I didn't want to do Sue's 4 legged elephant.




Someone made a set with elephants before and I would like to know if any of you remember who is was, or where the little elephant came from. It was just a outline, kind of like this elephant, but stuffed,kinda flat if you know what I mean. Not a stand up kind. I remember the ear was a different fabric. Would love to know how to get the pattern, even if its a sewing pattern.


UPDATE-I decided to quilt the burp like the bib and also put my 'Toogie' brand on, as I for got on the bib and later the elephant.


Yes, I had an ellie and it was so simple to stitch. I stitched it twice, reversing, so I would have an eye and ear for both sides. Does his tail need shortening to the knot in the middle? I don't think they have a long tail.....I don't see them here, where I live-lol-I would have liked to put a squeaker in him, but I must be out. Hope you all have a wonderful day-Toogie

Dumb internet in my area messed up---In all the world I watch on t.v. all these people in the remotest areas have cell phone coverage---ME--in rural area America and crappy cell coverage and internet. Your set is just adorable. I have a little elephant I put on my usb and am going to try it out and see what it is. I think it is just a front and back but not sure if it looks like yours. Still got to go out and try to remember to buy a package of diapers to have on hand to use with beautiful strips of fabrics. I love to see all of your creations.

toogie by toogie 28 Aug 2016

Thank you, that's nice to hear. I asked if anyone knew where I could find one and I re-looked into my files, and lo and behold, there they were.

What a lovely set you have made, I'm sure the person that receives this will be delighted. Did you have a pattern for the bib, I really like how it has a snap on one shoulder. Thanks

You know what, there was a Cutie that digitized me the neck part, because I only have a 5x7 hoop and I had to sew the rest, on my regular machine. I just saw the lady whose baby this is for, at the post office when I went to mail the other bibs, but I didn't have it with me.

This burp set you've done looks so adorable& sure to make some child wild about elles too. Wondered where you'd found this fabric if you don't mind telling? Thought it might be nice to add a wrist strap to make this elle stay on a baby's hand too. Thanks for sharing your projects. :~D

Good idea! The fabric was a fat quarter from Walmart,97 cents each.

the stippling is a nice addition. Ellie looks great, I love the ears, and the long tail is nice for little hands to grab (or suck on).

toogie by toogie 25 Aug 2016

I did shorten the tail and if its sucked on, it won't come off. I stitched it over & over & over!

What a lovely set. Elephant is a perfect addition, but I would shorten his tail. Hugs Shirley

Thanks Shirley, I did take your advice and shorten it.

Just a suggestion. if it's for a baby leave the tail off. Everything goes in their mouths and it could be a choking hazard

Unless he sucks the fibers apart, its not coming off. I stitched it so many times and back and forth.

Yes, this is it! Thank you for locating it for us. It stitched really well. I did use a 5x7 basing file first, to hold down my fabric, for the elephant.

mlbell70 by mlbell70 24 Aug 2016

I couldn't get the site to come up for the elephant download by clicking on the square in the right hand list, not sure what I did wrong.

toogie by toogie 25 Aug 2016

mlbell-click on the sqare of elephants on the right side of page. A drop box page will show up. Click on download. Then a sign up sq will apear. You don't have to sign in just close this , then hit download again and it will be a zip file.

It's machine, free motion quilting. I just hold the fabric and move it randomly. I think this method is so relaxing. I was lucky to find a set of these elephants, in a folder I had. I must have downloaded them this year and forgot about them.Thanks for looking.

Very cute set, Toogie...I have done many burps with a fabric panel down the center...sometimes using a couple of different coordinating fabrics...although the serged edge is fine...I still personally prefer adding a binding on the ends...just me I guess...I think the elephant stuffie would be adorable to add...if you can't find one, let me know and I will digitize one for you...

toogie by toogie 24 Aug 2016

You're so sweet but actually, I had several in a file I overlooked, thank you though. I am trying to get Gus a bib out of this too, is why I didn't bind it....maybe I'll get another piece.

This set is adorable. I especially like the font you used for his name and think the serged edge is fine.

Nice set, and the serged edge looks good to me. I am afraid I can't help you with a link to the elephant, but since you have the pattern, you could use Sue's 4 legged one and leave out the middle parts, making it 2 legged.

I found a whole herd (or set)lol in one of my files! The file says 'geburtselefant- with stars, heart, clover,mushroom,bandaid. I thought I had looked in all of them, so maybe tomorrow I will Update-going to bed now. I also googled and found a large sewing one, but I doubt I make a large one.
I thought the edge would be ok too, but I'm glad to have your opinion. Looking at it here, I should quilt it like I did the bib, don't you think?
