I like to call her Maude. The pattern is "Pink Elephant" from Toys to Sew by Claire Garland. She turned out OK but I was not pleased with the pattern at all. The instructions were vague. A couple of pattern pieces were labeled something different than they were in the instructions. And some of the pieces just did not seem to fit. I had to downsize the belly twice to get it to fit right.
Overall, that's been my experience with the book (OK, I've only made one other thing from it which is a Super Secret Christmas Present). The toys are way cute but the patterns are not really the best.
Now, Maude has a special purpose in life. Maude is a reward. A prize. I'm curious about just how many people I told about this blog are actually reading it. So, the first person to comment on this post gets Maude in all her glory. Wouldn't your life (or the life of someone you know) be complete with a big blue elephant? Feel free to leave a comment even if you are not the first. I might just be tempted to dig up some more prizes.
