Halton Waldorf School’s grade six students make stuffed elephants based on their own paintings. The seams are made with a blanket stitch and the tusks, eyes, and tail are made from felted wool.
Using the template, cut two pieces of cloth to make each side of the elephant.
Cut one piece of the template for the belly / inside of the legs.
Cut one egg shape piece to form a rounded forehead.
Cut two ears and four small circles to form the leg bottoms.
Join the body sides from the bottom of the tusk around to the tail location.
Turn the elephant over and attach all edges of the belly piece. The leg bottoms and forehead piece can then be added.
With a felting needle, attach the eyes, tail, ears and tusks.
Once all the pieces are together, make a small cut into the belly and insert quilt stuffing until the elephant is very full. Close this seam with tiny stitches made very closely together.
Here are the templates you can download and print. Or you can also draw your own!
