This animal has been on my pattern request list for some time, so I’m glad I’m finally able to get to it — it’s a cute elephant! When trying to decide how it might look, it seemed like a great opportunity to take advantage of the tiny body from the cow plush from back in February. So if you’ve made the cow previously you’ll find this one will be a breeze.
Just like the cow it has a cute little 4-legged body with a big head. The body is a bit complex since it’s a 3D shape with 4 tiny legs, but I do my best to break it down into simple seams. And because of the extra large head and trunk, it also requires a really big poly-pellet pouch to offset the weight. It also features big fun ears, an adorable trunk, and tiny little tusks that really pull the whole look together.
With all that in mind, I rated it a 4/10 in difficulty. As always, the pattern comes with applique templates to make the eyes if you’re using a regular sewing machine or working by hand. There are also embroidery files available if you have an embroidery machine. They’re 4″ x 4″ hoop sized, so no need to break out the big hoops 😊
I hope you all like it!
