First cut two elephants and two pieces of fabric 2 x 5 inches.
I used a bit of old woolen trousers for my elephant.
Sew all around the elephant, leaving a gap at the top.
Sew all around the rectangles leaving a gap at the top.
Clip the corners and turn right sides out
I top stitched the elephant's saddle.

I embroidered his ears with chain stitch and his eyes with french knots.
