Free Lucky Coat & Sweater Pattern



Do you have a little teddy or elephant that needs a wee coat or sweater? This simple coat can be made in minutes using some felt or other non-fraying fabric. A sweet sweater can be made using the very same pattern using a scrap of an old sweater or other stretchy fabric and a little extra hand-stitching. Think of the possibilities. What about a jacket made of minkie, fake fur, or some other fabric you love? You can shorten the length of the sleeves and jacket, curve the front pieces, add a collar, pockets, ribbons, buttons, or other embellishments. Sweater lengths can be reduced as desired and a small (partial) slit can be made on the back of the sweater (instead of a complete frontal opening style) to make a pullover type sweater. So do let your imagination run wild and have fun being creative! Please do share a picture, I LOVE to see what you are making.Love & hugs, Jean xo
