What you get+-

Meet Napoleon and Josephine – a very large elephant and a very tiny mouse. Do I need to tell you that the elephant is super huggable? I mean - just look at her! She’s really easy to make – great for beginners. You can make her in a single afternoon. And the little mouse! It’s all hand sewn from felt – a project perfect for toting around in your purse or working on while you watch TV.

You Get. . .

  • A digital PDF file delivered instantly by email. If you're not sure what that is, there's more info here.
  • full-sized pattern pieces – no enlarging needed
  • detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right
  • links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to make your own pair of friends – from sewing curves and stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole. You can totally do this! It’s a workshop in a pattern!


Josephine the elephant is a very huggable 10 inches tall - and just as broad. Napoleon the mouse is just under 3 inches tall. He points his nose up in the air to make himself seem taller, but it doesn’t really work. :-)


Easy! Both of them! Josephine is an easy softie pattern – nice big pieces that are easy to work with, gentle curves, nothing fussy. Napoleon is all hand-sewn, but is still not difficult. Just a bit more time-consuming.
