Carry Around -Dragon

Carry Around -Dragon

A carry along soft dragon for your kids. It may become your child's favorite toy! It's about 22" or 55 cm from head to feet.

What you need

Scraps of felt – white / black
Small amount of light green/dark green/orange Polar fleece.
Toy filling/wadding


Step 1: First, download the pattern here Dragon Pattern.

Step 2: Cut out all your pieces. Cut 2 leg pieces approximately 24″x 3″ (or 60 cm x 8 cm). The feet are stitched to both ends and then folded to make 2 legs.

Step 3: Sew around your body circle, sewing in the dark green long zig-zag piece as you go. Begin at the cut line behind the head and finish at the end of his tail remembering to face it inwards.

Step 4: Stitch across one end so you can turn.

Step 5: Turn and fill with wadding (nice and firm).

Step 6: Now stitch both ends together. This join will be at the back of the head.

Step 7: Stitch both your pieces of the head together stitching in the ears and remember to face them inwards. Sew completely all around and then make a small cut at the back so you can turn and fill it.

Step 8: Once you have filled your head sew up the cut. This will not be seen, as it will sit at the back.

Step 9: You can now stitch on the face features.

Step 10: Now stitch your feet. Only stitch half way around and set to one side. Do this to all four feet.

Step 11: Stitch one feet at each end of the two legs. They should sit so that the front seam of the feet is in the center of the leg so that when you stitch down the back of the leg you carry on down the back of the feet until you join up with the stitches you did at the front of the feet. Leave a gap halfway along so you can turn and fill. Only fill the feet not the legs.

Step 12: Now stitch up the gap and sew them into position. Stitch the leg to the body half way so that you end up with two legs both the same length.

Step 13: Stitch both legs onto the flat section at the bottom of the body.

Step 14: To finish off stitch the head to the body.

All done!
