I was so excited when Heather Bailey came out with her Effie and Ollie Elephant pattern. Now, this has been a while ago, maybe even over a year, and I am just now getting around to sewing up a circus of these cuties. This cute little heffalump can be used as a soft toy or pincushion. My dog prefers "toy". He's been eyeing my Ellie's with a truly disturbing look on his terrier face. I've hidden these little gems away where he'll never find them!
And here are all my Ellie's on parade!
What a fun and easy pattern! I can honestly say that I don't have any tips for you on this pattern because all the tips I could think of that would make this pattern easy are already in the pattern. I've raved about Heather's patterns before. They are SO easy to follow. Her language is right up my ally! I truly understand the instructions and the sketches are exactly what you see in real life. She is a master pattern writer. I'm always amazed at what I've accomplished when I am finished with one of her patterns. Because of Heather, I've added "Toy Maker" to my resume! So cool!
These elephants will be traveling on the road with me in my own personal circus called "The Quilt Show Circuit". How appropriate!
