I finally made the elephants. I used some left over grey fleece that I had form another stuffie project. I started out with the pattern the actaul size you showed it becasue I wans;t sure I'd have enough and my little baby elephant was born. And with some careful manuvering and resizing and pinning made her a mother elephant. The only problem I had is the legs go way wide with fleece.  I guess becasue it streches so much. So I put some gathers in it between the legs and fixed teh issue.
I can't wait to give them to my aunt. I'm going to make them little blankets for cover thier backs and I have yet to but something to glue them too so they'll stand up all the time. I'm thinking a wooden award plaque and some hot glue. Smiley I added tusks to my momma. Smiley

Here's the baby on my hand for scale.

I so love these little guys! Thanks so much for sharing this pattern!
Oh and if these strech the borad I'm so sorry! I thought I resized them.

This is the second one I made. I made this one for my baby son. Thanks for the great tutorial!

I don't have Photoshop so I used Microsoft Word to enlarge the pattern. Just so you know, I went with a 375% increase. This made the elephant come out to about 7 inches high.

 The first one I made is below and was corduroy and much harder to work with! GO WITH FELT!

I realize this is a very old post but I wanted to thank you for sharing the pattern!

I made two elephants for my 7 month old with this pattern out of my old maternity jeans.

I made a mini one, about 3 inches tall.  I had to do some funky sewing on this belly to make his legs stand up straight, but I'm still happy with him.

thanks for the pattern!

Hi, everyone!  This is my first post with a completed project.  I thought anyone who liked elephants would enjoy these!

I have to admit, this was something I saw in Family Circle, but I did alter them a little...  They were Christmas gifts for mom and boyfriend (at the time).  I hope no one else posted this!

They are 100% wool felt with polyfil for stuffing.



What do you think?  I'd be happy to describe the process of how they were made if anyone is interested.

Edit:  Eliea (thank you!) still had the pattern (my old computer died, which is why I  couldn't repost it for everyone who had asked), so I'm reposting it to my original post!
