    Hi, if you use the search function of the forum and type in Elmo you will see lots of topics. Project puppet's mostro pattern makes a reasonable Elmo. I used that one and it worked well and was relatively easy. I used that pattern for my elmo and I know others have also. Some people just make them up from scratch or alter the existing patterns.

    Hope that helps,

    Good luck, Greg

    HaHa. wow, blast from the past! I actually made this one when I first started building, many years ago, since then it has had 2 homes. The head was a modified version of the melonhead pattern, the body and arms were something I made myself. It has since changed at least 5 times...

    How about the fur? My local Joanns doesnt have a good fur selection. I looked at a fur thread here but most of the links were dead. Not looking for red, just good long soft fur.

    You would have to order online for furs, Joanns is a bust for that sort of thing. Mendels, Fabric Empire, Distinctive Fabric are all good sources for furs...
