Elephants :: Patchwork plushies

Plushies is only a term I've really become familiar with since I started reading While She Naps - to me these will always be called soft toys ...

Anyway here are my favourite elephants I've found on Pinterest on this theme.


1. I love the Indian inspired colours used in this elephant - if you go to the blog post you can see some close ups of the embroidery between each fabric piece
2. Not much patchwork going on here but I just loved the colours - there is a great tutorial on the blog this picture is from
3. A flat elephant but I just love the ears and trunk
4. The bright red lining of the ear and under carriage make this elephant stand out 
5. The inspiration for this selection - Abby Glassenberg design (While She Naps)
6. Crazy colours and embellishments make this elephant stand out 
7. Not strictly patchwork, but the applique on this elephant is just beautiful 
8. More red inner ears this time using floral prints
9. Knitted patchwork elephant - looks like it would be a difficult knit but beautiful
