9. Ezra the Elephant
This pattern is from the designer’s Doodle Zoo collection. Stitch this little guy up with a host of other animals, such as lions and koalas. Embroidered or crocheted eyes can work in place of the safety eyes if you are concerned about choking hazards.

11. Mr. Elephant
Meet the star of the circus! The pattern includes instructions for the elephant, of course, but you’ll also get a tutorial for the stage, the decorative ruffles and the hat. I love how the designer used primary colors for the accessories, but you can also substitute whatever you have in your stash.
