Cute elephant making of felt with free pattern!


You know what's so nice? Sometimes inspiration arises, and sometimes I like to get a suggestion. This time this came from the corner of elephants fan @Encaustichris I get it, they're beautiful animals to see in all their simplicity. So my challenge was an elephant. Not as big as a real one, I don't even have that much felt, haha. But it's a cute little version. Could be such a little boy. For this elephant there is a pattern waiting for you so you can get started.


For the beautiful wool felt, I would like to refer you to meaningfullcrafts. There is a large selection of all kinds of beautiful felt and various other materials
