This precious elephant softie and appliqué are very easy to make. Patterns are included to make the softie in three sizes – small (4” x 6 1/2”), medium (6” x 10”), and large (8” x 14”). A pattern to make the elephant in a
4 3/4” x 7 1/2” appliqué is also included. The pattern for the appliqué can be reduced or enlarged to make the elephant any size that you would like. Your favorite little boy or girl will love carrying these sweet animals around. They are perfect for little hands to hold! There aren’t any attached embellishments which make them safe for babies (although, babies should always be watched carefully with toys). The elephants are made with a ribbon tail which allows baby to explore his or her tactile senses. Making the elephants from different fabrics also allows for more tactile play – cotton, chenille, fleece, etc. can be used. A machine straight stitch is sewn around the ear appliqués – a machine or hand embroidered blanket stitch is another option.

This eight page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, a materials list, detailed instructions written in English and clear step-by-step photographs. Medium and large elephant softie patterns come in two pieces and need to be taped together.

super fast and easy, I made the smallest one with a piece of potato chip bag in the middle of the stuffing and my granddaughter loves it because it makes noise.

Fabric rectangles are a guideline.
Fabric (cotton, chenille, fleece, etc.) – 6” x 9” rectangle for appliqué, 6” x 18” rectangle for small softie,
9” x 26” rectangle for medium softie, 11” x 34” rectangle for large softie, 5” x 7” rectangle for ear/s on any size elephant
Iron-on fusible web for fabric – 6” x 9” rectangle for appliqués (Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 Fusible Web by The
Warm Company was used for sample elephants but any fusible web for fabric will work fine)
Polyester fiberfill for stuffing elephant softie
Sewing thread – color for outline around appliqués, color that matches fabric for softie
Ribbon – 16” piece of 7/8” wide ribbon for large softie, 15” piece of 7/8” wide ribbon for medium softie,
9” piece of 3/8” wide ribbon for small softie & appliqué (if using a different width ribbon than what is
recommended, you will need to adjust the length of the ribbon piece)
