Using my classroom projector and an Elmo coloring page,
I was able to enlarge my Elmo to be as big as I wanted:
He turned out to be about 20"by 20".
I then cut out my paper Elmo and traced his outline onto some soft, red flannel.
Finally, I pinned and...
...zig-zagged stitched him onto that soft, blue flannel.
I appliqued his eyes and nose.
As you can tell by Jackson's wagging tail, we're pretty happy about this one!
The entire quilt only measures 3'x3' as it's going to be a cuddle quilt for our grandguy.
So when I found that Seasame Street Fleece for the back I knew it would be perfect!
I just need to add some: Elmo Loves Jayden letters and it's ready to quilt.
Happy quilt making for sure! Stay tuned for part 2: The Quilting.
