This helps to secure the stuffing and makes it perfect for the little ones. (we do not want any stuffing picking out of the loose stitches)
Tapestry needle – For sewing in the parts and ends.
Stitch marker – To secure your pieces before sewing/joining.
Polyfill stuffing – To give your crochet Elephants shape!
