Is elephanting even a word? According to word checker, no it isn’t. Oh well, I can dream.
Anyway, this post is about an elephant plushee I made for my friend’s birthday. I had said that I would make her an owl cushion, but I found out she had already made herself one with a kit received at Christmas. So instead, I made her an elephant, and I am actually pretty pleased with how it turned out!
and used material I won for the body, and material I bought at the market for the ears.
I cut out the pattern pieces:
And then pinned them right sides together;
I sewed all the way round, leaving a gap on the elephant’s bottom:
I then turned it right side out
Then I stuffed the elephant using wadding, and sewed him up, adding a tail. The sewing is slightly more visible than I would have liked, and possibly could have been stuffed a tad more, but all in all, I am rather pleased!
