Simple Soft Toy Elephant

Sewing:

I love making children's toys so this week I have a simple soft elephant for you. It reminds me of Emma's Easy-to-Make Soft Toy Elephant.

This is a great project for a beginner sewer and will take you under an hour.

I just drew up a basic elephant shape, similar to Em's and added a large ear in a contrasting colour that sits separate to the body.

If you want to make this for a little one I suggest you use either appliquĂ© or embroider a small eye on just to be safe, like I did.

I made mine with a cute blue gingham check but I think it would be great recycling an old jumper or pair of jeans.

Happy sewing.
