Make step-by-step


Draw out an outline for a narwhal onto paper. This outline can be as big or as small as you want you final narwhal to be. On the narwhal outline draw a line from the tail along the bottom of the narwhal to the other side. You will also need to draw out a tusk.

Next cut out the paper templates and cut along the line on the body template.


Using the blue fabrics cut out the body pieces (4 for the body: 2 pieces for the upper half and 2 pieces for the lower half). Using the spotty fabric cut out the tusk (2 pieces) leaving a 0.5cm seam allowance.

Narwhal pieces


Take one of the two upper body pieces and place right side up, take one of the lower body pieces and place right sides together and sew along the edge to join. Repeat for the remaining upper and lower body pieces.

Joining body of narwhal together


Take the 2 tusk pieces and place right sides together, sew around leaving the bottom edge unsewn. Turn out the right way and place in a little of the stuffing.


Place one of the joined body pieces down right side facing up and place the narwhal tusk on top with the raw edge of the narwhal tusk aligned with the raw edge of the body piece. Place the other body piece on top right sides facing down and sew around leaving a 6cm gap for turning.
