Xmas : Decorated Stuffed Elephant – by Lynn

 

Lynn suggests you might want to preparea the piece of cloth with glittery bits of material.

Here is the template:-Elephant

N.B. The exact measurement of the elephant is 13.8cm wide & 10.2cm high, but any proportion can be used to suit your preference. If you print directly from this pdf, the size will be a little smaller, as it adjusts to fit your paper.  (To get nearer to the correct size, download the pdf file first and choose to open it. Then click on Print and set the scale to none)
