I made the body of the Unforgettable Elephant about… oh, a year ago? Baby M is not a big fan of me getting personal time, so I never finished this project for him. The ears remained unsewn because you need to hand sew them to the body of the elephant. You also need to hand sew a portion of the body of the elephant shut once you have stuffed it with the Polyester Fiberfill. So the Unforgettable Elephant project remained unfinished because ugh hand sewing is the worst!

  1. I am stuck with the tail! How to turn it right side out when its so thin? I am using quite a thick corduroy… was thinking of changing it to the thinner contrast cotton fabric instead!

    1. If you are having problems turning the fabric, do you have a turning tool? It might work better than the safety pin trick on thick fabrics. Its a tube and a stick that is specifically made for sewing, so I would give it a try. If you can’t make it work, then I am sure your thinner contrast fabric would look great!
