Lucky the Elephant-KIT

*In pattern designer Jean Paccagnon’s own words “Make your very own 6" (15 cm) tall heirloom quality fully-jointed "Lucky" elephant! Have fun making little outfits using my easy methods.

These little elephant dolls are so special to make and dress because they are free standing and posable! (Lucky the elephant is also the easiest little friend to make out of all the patterns and a great place to start your jointed doll journey!)

You will love this quick sew method of sewing before cutting - it makes sewing small pieces a dream. Even better, there are no gussets involved in this design and no hand-stitched noses or mouths are required!

Learn all the tricks and tips I teach my elephant making students. Full tutorial-style instructions with colour photos and pattern included for an elephant, overalls, and a dress, as well as how to joint, attach glass eyes, and add the finishing touches.

See more photos of Lucky (and Lucky's best friends Matilda bunny, Kittie the ca, Flopsy bunny, and Little Teddy) on Instagram @whatsmatildawearing, on my blog, on sotreasured by Jean Paccagnan on Pinterest, and in my short videos at sotreasured on YouTube.

The elephants and clothes that you make using this pattern can be sold on a small scale if you mention that your item was made using a So Treasured design by Jean Paccagnan. The pattern designs (including all photos, diagrams, and written instructions) are protected by copyright and cannot be copied or used for sale, resale, or distribution however.”

*These dolls are heirloom quality when complete, made with the finest German mohair or viscose fabrics, glass eyes and high quality fiber discs and joints. Check Jean’s blog for several free clothing and accessory patterns for your doll.

*What’s included in your kit: Jean’s DIGITAL pattern, which includes the Lucky pattern, overall pattern and a dress pattern to dress your elephant, beautiful quality German viscose body fabric in colour stone, (image 4), inner ear fabric (in a very similar dot as what is shown), a pair of handblown glass eyes in black, and all the cotter pins and disc joints required for one elephant, glass filler beads for added weight. You can see attached an image of the basic kit and the kit with the added on stuffing tool and shoes (as described below) in the last image. 

NOT included is fabric for the clothes (Lucky’s dress as shown on the first and second image is made in Acufactum Robin fabric, but of course fabrics from your stash or other fabrics from the shop would work beautifully also), any accessories pictured such as hats, bows etc, stuffing, or the shoes. We decided not to include the shoes so you can choose the colour and style yourself if you’d like shoes for your doll. The shoes are beautifully made and I highly recommend them! They fit perfectly on Jean’s dolls. You will also require basic sewing supplies and a few other tools as described in Jean’s pattern.

*Jean recommends Hobbs Poly-down fibrefill, but you may also choose a high quality stuffing of your liking.
