This is another great tutorial Runo,Thank you! I will make this for my grandson! I will embroider the eyes and not use wire, but I think he will enjoy it.

Thank you Runo for this perfect pachyderm. My friends daughter gave all of her birthday money to save a pygmy elephant, I think she deserves her own little elephant, don't you?

Thanks to your template for a 2 inch elephant I made a 56 inch long and 36 inch high stuffed elephant with moving legs to ride around on Halloween. It took me 10 months,its the best thing I've ever done and I would never have been able to do it without you. You can see it here-(http://www.facebook.com/people/Chani-Hubbell/1575155703).Again, thank you so, so much.

Making for a special person.
This is awesome! Almost done with my elephant. Just need to invert it and stuff in cotton and sew it back!

Thank you very much for this!
Grace of God unto you.

I love this and your leopard. Could you put a pattern up the lop ears of the lop bunny. I don't understand when you say bigger. Wider or longer? Thanks. :)

It is really cute. I also like how it looks like a real elephant. I've actually riden an elephant before. I'm going to make this.

Thank you so much for sharing! I'm going to use this plan and 25-50 pounds (11 kilograms - 23 kilograms) of polyester filler to make an over sized stuffed elephant (perhaps the size of a baby elephant?) It may sound crazy, and a lot of work, but it will certainly please my significant other. I can't wait to get started!

On the top part of the tail, what are the dotted lines for? Are they fold lines or sewing lines?
Thanks!

They are fold lines.

Thank you, I increased the size of your pattern and used it for the Wooly Mammoth my son has been wanting. It was so much nicer than having to make my own pattern.
