From thick paper or cardboard, we cut out templates-individual details of the elephant-and outline the outlines, spreading out patterns on knitted fabric. Torso and legs of the elephant draw together. First, we cut out the whole body, we circle on the fabric, and then cut the template along the line indicated by the dotted line, we circle the legs separately. Now we need to cut the fabric, leaving half a centimeter on all sides - gaps on the seams. Scissors will make cuts for the ears of the elephant (in the indicated places on the trunk) We stumble darts on the details of the ears.We sweep, we spend on the sewing machine preliminary having combined their facial sides in pairs. That edge, which will be sewn to the trunk, is left loose. We connect the details of the soft toy with elastic seams - "knitted" or "forward needle".

We tightly fill the sylphon with the elephant's trunk throughnot a sewn site on the back and try to distribute the sintepon evenly. Let's start making the tail - we cut the lines along the tail parts, fold the tube and sew small stitches so that the brush turns out. To the inside of one of the parts of the trunk the tail is sewn. Using a hidden seam, sew a hole on the back, secure the thread and cut off the excess end. Then we sew the soles. We put the cut out detail of the soles on the leg of the elephant face up, edges bend inward, sew around the circle with small stitches.
