What you need

Sewing Machine


Simply print out the patterns below. Each page should be sized to fit onto a A4 sized paper.

Cut out your elephant, or whatever your child would like.

Stitch the ear in place.

Now go around the edge with a coloured thread and a decorative stitch.

If you don’t have a sewing machine then you could edge it with a blanket stitch by hand.
