Elephanties "R" Us!

I'm working on a custom elephant plush for a very cool chicky I met through the blogosphere. (Hi Kaila!)

I've never done an elephant before.  Eeek!  But I've been sketching and planning and figuring and I finally got to the point where I can start making pattern pieces.  Hooray!

And actually, this pattern is coming along pretty smoothly. I've been at it just an hour (ok maybe two) but I'm at least half done and I think it's really gonna look great. Every time I do one of these patterns, I think I get a little better at it.  Boooyah!!

Ok, I know it doesn't look like much yet - but believe me - patterns are tricky creatures.  Once I get all the pieces figured out - I can start picking out and cutting fabric!  I can't wait!!  I'm hoping to get it 100% figured out this week. Then I can get my Professor Owl  done this weekend.  And if I'm feeling really squirrely (and have the time) I can start cutting out this pachyderm.  :)
