Notions for your elephant sewing pattern
- Fabric: 1/2 m will make the whole elephant.
- To make the hands and feet a different colour you will need a piece of fabric 15cm x 15cm. To make the ears in a different fabric you will need a piece 30cm x 20cm
- If you would like stiffer slightly plumper ears, use iron on fleece 30cm across x 20cm tall
- Interfacing: I have used a medium weight iron on woven cotton interfacing
- Eyes: 18mm craft eyes
- Buttons: 4 buttons. The ones I have used are 22mm wide
- Dental tape or strong upholstery thread to attach the arms and legs and create the gathered section at the bottom of the elephant’s trunk
- Doll needle to attach the arms and legs
- Toy stuffing and a plastic chopstick, or something similar that is long with a blunt end, to insert the stuffing
- Plus: pins, cotton thread that matches your fabric, hand sewing needles, scissors, plus pinking shears if you have them and a sewing machine
