What advice would you give someone starting this project? When completed, it measures 15" from tip of tail to trunk and 10" from top of back to bottom of feet! This stuffed elephant is soft, squishy, sweet and looking for a child to love! The big floppy ears and foot pads will be so special with the addition of your fabric choice! Coordinate it with a blanket and make it truly one of a kind! If you are a crocheter as well, and have my Crocheted Reversible Baby Blanket Pattern knit up this Precious Pachyderm to coordinate! For baby or toddler in the bed, crib, stroller, car or just for play! Great one of a kind shower gift, birthday present or for any special child in your life! Any worsted weight (4) acrylic yarn will work for easy care and washing! Holding up to lots of hugs and kisses! Make him or her as firm or squishy as you like! I would suggest washing just like any stuffed a pillowcase, tumble dry.

I downloaded the pattern but jsutwondering in the picture of the pink one, the trunk design is different than the beige one. I really like the trunk on the pink one, can you describe the stitching for that part? thanks.

I would like to know how to get this pattern. I click on Precious Pachyderm, but it is not the same as Polly. I like the way you did the trunk on Polly.
