Suedewsbury's Baby Elephant-I was so excited to try Sue's baby elephant,since my hoop is a 4x4, and I have never made a softee.I love her! I made her into a pacifier holder, by adding a ribbon as her tail.I intended to st the ribbon in with the seam, when I replaced the first half of elephant, but of course,I forgot.I had to sew it securely by hand,before I stuffed her.Sue stressed that she hand tacked her halves together, to align them, before sewing last st out. This is extremely important. Mine were off a little so I had to resew around on my regular sewing machine,and I still have a few sts showing on her back.However all babies are not born perfect, we love them unconditionally.Thank you Sue for your baby elephant, to my baby Elanora.Also, you can find the butterfly font at Embroidery All Sorts.I stitched just the letter on one side and then when I reversed Sue's Elephant,I stitched the b-fly in reverse.The last 2 photos are before resewing and stuffing, and shown as an example, of what happens when you don't align well.I hope you try Sue's design and thank her for this gift.I think you will like it as much as I do.-Toogie
