This elephant stuffed animal is a great one for intermediate to advanced sewers. There are a few parts- gusset, darts and such that might take the beginner sewer off gaurd. The pictures for the elephant plushie are great and will guide you right through the process of putting it together.
Don’t get hung up with being realistic- have some fun with different colors of felt…and if you want, you could add some fabric scraps on the ears as accents.
