It's almost Christmas! You have just enough time to sew up some cute toys for under the tree, and this pattern from Ruby Jean's Closet just happens to be our #1 toy pattern pick for this year! Thank you, Stephanie and JaNette for your lovely reviews; such cute little Ellies!

The main thing to watch is to make sure you transfer the placements of eyes, trunk, etc over to your fabric. So make sure you have a washable fabric marker or something to mark those....it's extremely helpful. There is also a glossary of terms towards the end to help explain some of the sewing directions if you get stuck. I love that you don't have to fuss over attaching arms or legs. However, there are instructions to give her arms the ability to bend and it is another place you will need to mark with your washable fabric marker.
The Ellie pattern also comes with instructions for the bow, bib, and diaper accessories and those were perfect scrap busters!! I have more to sew up for Ellie in the coming weeks and I love using up my scraps.
