Lucky Labrador Puppy 18" Doll Pet Pattern

12   |  

Lucky is a cute little Labrador puppy that’s the perfectly-sized pet for your 18 inch dolls.

Made from short pile soft cuddle plush (Minky® in the US, Shannon Cuddle 3 in the UK) this adorable little pup is so sweet you just want to hug him (or her!).

The bonus dog bed can be made from fleece or any soft stretchy fabric, e.g. fleece or stretch velvet. It has plenty of room for two puppies to share.

The Lucky Labrador Puppy pattern has been designed with novice toymakers in mind. The body has only four main pattern pieces, and the head has three main pieces.

The required techniques to finish the puppy are all explained with detailed step by step photographs inside the PDF sewing pattern.

NOTE: The finished puppy is approximately 4" (10 cm) tall and he measures approximately 7½" (19.5 cm)from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.

Recommended Fabrics:  Puppy- 3mm pile cuddle plush fabric (e.g. Minky®); Dog Bed - fleece, stretch velvet, cuddle plus fabric, fur fabric. 

Supplies Needed:
-20” x 10” of 3mm cuddle plush type fabric e.g. Shannon Cuddle3 (also known as Minky® in the USA).
-One quarter of a yard (25 cm) of fleece fabric or stretch velvet for the dog bed.
-4 oz (115 gram) of polyester fiberfill toy filling is sufficient to make the puppy and the dog bed.
-A small piece of good quality black felt for the eyes and nose (a 1” square is plenty).
-One ½” (13mm) rhinestone slider (buckle) for the collar.(You may find this near the fold over elastic (FOE) used to make baby headbands).

Labrador Puppy

This is a cute pattern! I used brown fleece. I used 6 strands of DMC floss for nose, but it was tough getting the needle through. Perhaps I should try the nose pattern. Also, I think it would be easier to apply nose before stuffing. I'm thinking that I'll try to have the opening underneath, so no hand stitches would be visible. I have 3 more ready to stuff! So fun!

I found the pattern for the Labrador puppies easy to follow and turned it really cute. I used a suede type fabric.
