The instructions for assembling the elephant are as follows:

Step 1 Choose the colour of the felt and the threads. A good general rule is to choose thread in a colour to match the felt. Then black thread is great for adding facial details.

Step 2 Print out the design in the size you want.

Step 3 Cut out the shapes in felt, using the paper template.

Step 4 On one of the two identical head pieces, sew two small black beads to form the eyes.

Step 5 On the same piece of felt, add eyebrows using black thread.

Step 6 Now it's time for the ears. Take the smaller of the two ear pieces and sew it onto the bigger one to form an ear. Repeat for the second ear.

Step 7 Take the two head pieces and sew around the edges to join them, adding the ears while sewing around. Leave a small opening to pack in some toy stuffing.

Step 8 Stuff the head and then sew closed.

Step 9 Take the two smaller (and rounder) tail pieces and sew them together, enclosing the end of the bigger (longer) tail piece.

Step 10 Take the two body pieces and sew around the edges, adding the tail while sewing. Leave a small opening to pack in some toy stuffing.

Step 11 Stuff the body and then sew closed.

Step 12 Sew the body and head together and be proud of what you made:)

Important Note: There are two ways to sew the head and body together. The first option is to sew the head on top of the part where the neck part of the body piece should be. The second option is to not fully sew the head piece closed after stuffing, then to tuck the "neck part" inside the body and sew everything together, so that the neck part is inside the head.
