How To Make Your Own Kawaii Felt Elephants
Start by cutting all of the pattern pieces as per the printable felt elephant pattern.
Begin by pinning and sewing the bottom part of the legs.
Install doll eyes. You could also choose to hand embroider a set of eyes, or even use fabric paint or markers.
Sew on the ears.
You can optionally decide to sew on a little heart, or hand embroider some details…
Pin the bottom part of the legs to the elephants body, matching the felt up at the legs.
Start stitching at the front of the body towards the back. When you reach the end/back part of the elephant, pin the opposite side in place and begin sewing the legs together.
Continue sewing up the front of the body to the tip of the elephant’s trunk.
Match the front face gusset to one side of the body and begin stitching in place.
Sew the entire face gusset to the body. When you reach the end of the gusset, tie off your stitches and return to the tip of the trunk once again. Sew the opposite side of the face in place.
Begin stuffing the elephant. Sew the remaining felt together until you have one small space open.
Stuff the elephant completely. Tie a piece of yarn or string in a knot on one end. Tuck the knot into the hole at the back of the elephant. Add in a couple stitches to keep the knot firmly in place inside of the elephant’s body. Sew the last opening shut.
Go back and sew a whole pile of rainbow colored elephants!
