Such a toy can also be a great gift, which will be especially appreciated, as it will be made with your own hands, and therefore unique and unique! In addition, elephants have always been considered talismans for happiness, prosperity and good luck!
Sewing such a baby elephant is very easy. Quite a bit of time and a minimum of materials for work. Let's get started?
Materials for work:
fabric (small size) - any color and structure (for example, cotton)
some felt - for ears
filler - polyester or cotton
beads (black) for eyes - 2 pcs.
lace - thin
Print the elephant’s pattern, and then cut out the details.
Fold the fabric in half so that the front is inside. Mark with a marker on fabric the cut out pattern of details. Then sew them along the contour. Be sure to leave a small hole. We need it to fill the filler.
Scissors cut the part along the contour (in zigzags).
Then twist it. This can easily be done with any delicate object (sticks, brushes, and so on).
Fill the baby elephant through the hole. Start with the trunk, which is filled especially carefully, and then the whole body.
To make a ponytail, grab a string. Tie a knot at one end. Pull the lace into the eye of the needle and extend the toy to it in place of the tail (from the inside). Then pull the cord.
Tie a knot and fluff the end of the lace.
Sew in the hole.
Cut the ears out of felt. Sew the outer edges with colored thick threads.
Place the ears on the toy head symmetrically and sew (with thick threads).
Sew to the head black beads - eyes. Embroider eyelashes over them with black thread.
That's all, the wonderful little elephant is ready! You can sew a lot of such cute animals! They can be of different colors or even multi-colored. Imagine, dare! And who knows, maybe you want to make a whole herd of such funny elephants?
