That is SOOOOOOOO cute!!

I saw this last night at midnight, and I loved it SO much, that I tried making my own. It took me about an hour and a half. It was my first doll/toy thing... so it turned out a little... well... weird. I also didn't stuff it enough. But it's still pretty cool. It ended up pretty small... but I'm definitely going to make a bigger one after I head to Wal-Mart for some more felt.

Thanks soooo much for posting this. Now I'm going to be making little felt stuffed play things all the time. Smiley

I've been looking for a great elephant base like this because I want to embroider on it "I love you tons!" and give it to my sweetie!  This elephant is perfect!  can't wait to try it out.

Thanks for sharing!

This is my version (without ears) that I did with craft felt.  I used the pattern I threw up exactly and it came out like so:

Before blocking he looked like this:

Essentially all i did was add seam allowance, cut out pattern pieces, trace pattern lines on felt, hand backstitch on pattern lines, turn inside out and stuff.  Be careful sewing the sharp angles that come together on the trunk and derriere.  Use a stiletto or some other tool to aid in stuffing if you make a little one like I did, it's also useful for turning.  Once stuffed, whip closed and dip in water.  It doesn't matter if it's hot or cold since craft felt is acrylic, but the water makes the material workable, and if you used a marking pen like I did, it gets that out too.  Massage the form until it's in a pleasing shape and let it dry.  I did add some ears this guy after taking these pictures- they're just circles with a slice cut off the side and a small dart.

Very nice! I never would have thought to wet it down and mold the shape a bit.
