So I finally took the time to sit down and spend some time away from my computer screen to craft. My very first project was to make a stuffed Toothless from the movie How to Train Your Dragon. Well, that was before I had my sewing machine, so I was piecing it all together by hand.
Well, needless to say that was long and slow and painstaking and I never actually managed to finish the poor guy. I finally dug out all of his pieces and finished the last bit of sewing, stuffed him, and here he is! My very first stuffed animal... about six months later :p.
Isn't he cute? He's made of black velveteen cut from a skirt I never wore. The wings and fins are all hand stitched for the veining (ugh! Never doing THAT again!) and there are pipe cleaners in the edges of the wings.
I did learn a lot working on this guy. The wings aren't really fully posable, and one of his legs likes to lay at a funny angle, but hey! I've got a Toothless! I'm just happy the poor guy is finally done and stuffed and not a pile of fabric pieces in my drawer.
Oh, and I used this tutorial. Katy-A deserves the credit for making the pattern!
