Here's the instructions and what Lisa had to say about her pattern:  Here's the pattern you are going to need. Just click on the pictures above and a full sized pattern will appear. It is meant to be printed on an 81/2 x 11 Sheet of paper. Cut out the pattern pieces and trace them on your sock and then sew around your outlined pieces. Cutting out individual pieces and then trying to sew them is much harder and we like easy stuff, right?

1.  Sew all the pattern pieces, trim and use fraychek on your edges then turn.
2.  For the elephants head, turn your head so the trunk is seam side up, pinch the head closed and sew the opening shut.  It looks like a "T."
3.  Wire your trunk with a chenille stem.
4.  Stuff all your pieces except your ears.
5.  See picture below:

To complete this project, you'll need a pair of crew length socks, sewing machine (I set my stitch length on 1.5), matching thread, stuffing, floral wire, embroidery thread, a set of eyes or buttons (if you're not going to embroider yours), and things to embellish your elephant like trim. If you want to have your elephant balancing on something, you'll need something interesting like a sundae dish or a cupcake. This pattern and tutorial are for the elephant only.
