Last year we were lucky enough to receive a copy of How To Train Your Dragon on DVD for review. Amber was instantly captivated by this animated feature, and even though she is a teenager she still loves her plushies.
When Christmas was nearing, and we asked her what she wanted, she said she wanted a Toothless plushie (that’s the main dragon character in the movie). I looked high and low for a stuffed Toothless. I was (and still am) somewhat surprised that they never made any of these for retail distribution when marketing the movie.
After extensive internet searches we found a very cool tutorial on DeviantArt. Since Amber had to do a sewing project for her FACS course this year, I amended it from sewing a piece of clothing to sewing a stuffed dragon.
We chose to use black polar fleece so the edges wouldn’t fray, and the eyes we found at Hobby Lobby and are ‘cat eyes’ for doll making I guess.
The instructions given are quite good. I mean yes we had some crying, some needle stuck fingers and a lot of seam ripping, but in the end Amber ended up with her very own Toothless that she can proudly display on her bed.
What do you think? Good resemblance?
