Today, I'm working with felt. You could also use fabric or paper for this project. Let me walk you through the steps.

To diecut the parts of the Elephant, create a Sizzix sandwich: lay felt pieces on the blade side of the Elephant die. Place the die between a pair of Sizzix Accessory Mint Cutting Pads. Pass the whole Sizzix sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine. I have used scraps to cut out the parts of my Elephant. You just have arrange your scraps over the shaped blades of your Sizzix die.

Machine stitch the parts of the Elephant on and also run a stitch along the edges. Adjust to the machine's slowest speed. You could totally hand stitch too.
