A Free Crochet Elephant Pattern and How to do a Fabric Flower.

Hello to you all!!  I'm really glad I finished this crochet elephants and I can't wait  to show you the pictures that I took. The pattern
to make this elephant is a gift, offered from Jan , she is the author of a beautiful blog called "Jan Made". You will find the pattern for the crochet elephant HERE.
This is a blog I discovered not long ago trough my google groups , and  I'm so happy that I foud her!
I invite you to visit her blog and discover the world of Jan, her creations are
beautiful and she is so generous that she offers several free knitting and crochet patterns / tutorials.
The interesting thing about my post today is that I have two new features, the first is show you these elephants I have done following her pattern.

..the other is that although in her tutorial Jan, shows us how to make the crochet flower  to decorate the elephant I decided to improvise and I made  a fabric flower, but I didn't stop there,

I decided to make a video on you tube showing how I made the flower ...... that was  a big experience. The most important detail that I have to let you know is that is done in Spanish (you know it's my language).
For those of you who do not speak Spanish, you can remove the volume of the video and you  will understand the steps without difficulty.
I feel I've opened a new door in my life, after fight  a few hours to make a montage and more hours to add the music, when I finally saw the video on you tube it was a nice experience and a nice feeling!
In case anyone wants to see how I did the flower I will try to upload the video to the blog  at the end of this publication, but just in case it does not work, here is the link, actually takes 5 minutes to do this flower ( more exactly 10 minutes), you will check it!
Hola a todos!!! Estoy realmente contenta de haber terminado estos elefantes en crochet y de poder mostrarles las fotos que tomé.
El patrón
para hacer este elefante, es un regalo  que nos ofrece Jan , ella es la autora del  blog Jan Made.
Este es  un blog que yo he descubierto no hace mucho gracias al mundo de google, y estoy contenta de mi descubierta, pues su blog es hermoso.

Los invito a visitar su blog ( hagan click aqui) y a descubrir el mundo de Jan, sus creaciones son
hermosas y es tan generosa que nos ofrece varios proyectos de tejido y de crochet gratis.
Lo interesante de mi post del dia de hoy es que tengo dos novedades, la primera es
mostrarles los elefantes que he hecho siguiendo su patrón.
Aqui esta el enlace donde encontraran el patron.

la otra es que si bien Jan nos muestra en su tutorial como hacer la flor en
crochet para decorar el elefante yo decidí improvisar y hice la flor en tela,
pero no me detuve allí,
Decidi hacer un video en You Tube mostrando como hice la flor...... esta fué toda una experiencia. El detalle mas importante es que esta hecho en español( ustedes saben que es my lengua materna).
 Yo siento que he abierto una nueva puerta en mi vida, luego de pelearme horas para hacer el montaje y horas para poner la musica, cuando finalmente pude  ver el video en you tube fué una linda sensacion!
Voy a tratar de subir el video al blog pero, por si no funciona, aqui les dejo el enlace hacia mi video por si alguien quiere ver como hice la flor, en realidad lleva 5 minutos, en realidad lleva no mas que 10 minutos realizarla, ustedes lo comprobaran.
Here is the video, I hope everything works well
 Aqui esta el video, ojala funcione todo bien
