Did you know that September 22nd is Elephant Appreciation Day? It's true!

Even if you're not celebrating this fun "holiday" in your own life, we still think that you will appreciate the sewing projects found on this page of 10 Elephant Sewing Patterns (free!).

We've selected our favorite elephant patterns from stuffed animals of all types to pillows and bags. This hand-chosen collection is just what you need to celebrate this appreciation day or any day that you want to remind yourself of these gentle giants.

With elephant sewing patterns and tutorials that are both adult- and kid-friendly, there isn't a single elephant project below that you'll want to bypass. We also picked several that are fantastic scrapbusters or use recycled and upcycled materials, which keep them thrifty and eco-friendly.

30 Minute Stuffed Animal

This 30 Minute Stuffed Animal is made using an old shirt! So, yours might not be an elephant if you're without an elephant shirt. However, we thought it was worth including in case you do or if you want to use this awesome and unexpected process for other shirts you might have. What a brilliant idea!

Indian Elephant Clutch Purse

With the classic gold Indian elephant stamp, it's a must-have for your elephant-loving self or friends. We really love all the shiny and dynamic accents, too.

I do not have an old cover for high chair to use as a pattern. How can I get a pattern to use?

Which type of elephant? I can't choose - all elephants are sweet. I can't wait to make all of these projects!
