Featured Tutorial - Elephant Softies by Christina Mckinney

Hello! I'm stopping by today, a very rainy day here in California (what a blessing!) to share with you two stuffed elephants (pattern from Christina Mckinney) I just finished. I made them specially for my new baby's room. Actually I'd love to share more pics from the nursery, but as I told earlier I'm very slowly these days and I'm just waiting some mom's help to get things done ;-)

But, as you can see I've chosen the colors for my baby boy nursery: gray and blue. I also chose chevron and polka dots as the main patterns for some decorating items and bedding.

I'm also starting a new section on my blog: Tips&Tutorials. In this case this is a featured one, since the pattern is from Christina to Birch Fabrics Blog. Thank you so much Christina and Birch Blog to share this clear and easy tutorial!


If you're looking for stuffed animals for your baby or toddler I'm sure you can please them with this very cute elephant. I've seen some very colorful and they are super fun! I'm also thinking in a very scrappy one!




I've linked up my finished elephant softies in Needle and Thread Thursday hosted by Kelly on her blog"My Quilt Infatuation"; in Fabric Frenzy Friday hosted by Lindsey and Jodie on their blog "Fortworth Fabric Studio". Also In Crazy Mom Quilts in her famous Finish it up Friday weekly post.

Hi Kathryn! Definitely go ahead and make one (or Two!). It's very very easy to make I can guarantee you!Just follow the pattern and choose a size. I think the bigger size is just perfect.Thank you for stopping by!
