If you are going to make your first teddy bear I would recommend reading my posts about basic sewing and step by step tutorial “How To Make A Teddy Bear”.

List of Materials

I was making these elephants from different colored pieces of German viscose Steiff Schulte with a pile length of 6 mm. You can also use fur fabric for miniature teddies.

The full size of the elephant is 12 cm, and he is 10 cm in his sitting position.


1. 1/16 piece (25×35 cm) of viscose with a fur length of 6 mm.

2. Strong threads, the same color as your fabric, and a needle for hand sewing.

3. Scissors for cutting fabrics.

4. A pair of blue glass eyes with pupils on a metal loop – 6 mm in diameter.

5. Waxed thread.

6. An awl.

7. Synthetic filler.

8. Metal or glass pellets for the weight (small diameter).

9. Cotton fabric for the ears and feet.

10. Paints and brushes.

11. Pins.

12. Discs 12 mm in diameter – 6 pieces for the head and hands. Discs 15 mm in diameter – 4 pieces for the legs.

13. Washers 12 mm diameter – 10 pieces.

14. T-shaped cotter pins 1,6×20 – 5 pieces.

15. Pliers.

16. For the hat: yarn and knitting needles. Or if you do not know knitting take a small piece of knitted fabric and sew thread of the same color.

I have prepared also a tutorial on making this teddy elephant and his outfit.
