PDF Sewing Pattern for 6 inch Vintage Elephant

I now have several patterns for 'traditional' bears, but this pattern was the one i used for my first ever 'proper' bear (i say that cos i usually make more unconventional fluffies).   This pattern is by Sengster and i'd definitely recommended it for first time bear makers (or even those who have been sewing for a while).  If you're new to using fake fur (it can be a little trickier to sew with ~ thickness, et.c.) try sewing a backing onto the fur first ~ i use felt, makes it easier, imo :)
