Ok, here is the pattern. Trying to be helpful, I labeled parts and added numbers for how many you need to cut of each piece.
If you regularly sew, it is pretty easy to follow with no directions (that's how I did it)...but I will put a few just in case. To get a good idea of how the pattern works, take a look at the pattern versus my elephant.Here we go:
1. Save the pattern, enlarge it, and print. It will probably get a little fuzzy when you enlarge it, but you just need the general outlines... (I enlarged til my elephant body was about 7 inches tall)
2. Pick your colors. If you want something like the green/yellow/brown one, cut your shapes accordlingly.
3. Right sides together, sew the main body from the end of his trunk until you get just over the hump of his back **See the BUTT view of my elephant** Where the brown felt meets the green/yellow is where you need to stop sewing.
4. Take the two underbelly sections and match up the dashed areas (right sides together). Sew ONLY the solid lines--the open space is where you will add stuffing.
SEWING THE BODY TO THE UNDERBELLY
(don't sew the trunk or bottoms of his feet shut!!!) Also, if you're like me, the bottoms of the legs will not match up exactly with the underbelly. This is OK--just ignore it
and trim them after he's sewn.
5. Starting at the trunk, match and pin the underbelly to the main body--right sides together, of course--and sew.
6. Match and pin the other side of the underbelly to the body and sew that.
7. TURN HIM INSIDE OUT!
--This is the fun part where it's a huge pain to to get that trunk to go inside out...but you can do it! I have faith!
8. If you're like me, the legs did not match up exactlly.
Just trim them straight across.
9. Go ahead and stuff him
I really packed it in there, so he would stand nice and tall. Then stitch the stuffing hole shut!
10. Hand stitch the bottoms of the feet to the legs and the end of the trunk to the trunk.
I almost forgot them. Make two in opposing directions! Right sides together, sew around the part that will not connect to the head. Flip inside out, stitch down to the head.
I wish I had pictures to go with the step by step, but you should be fine! Like I said, I didn't follow any directions for this, so I hope the ones I made up aren't too confusing.
Let me know if you have any trouble, and I will try to help!
