OMG! I can't believe I finally finished this project!
My nephew's favorite movie right now is How To Train A Dragon. In fact a few weeks ago they came up and brought the movie and we watched it. I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the movie. My boys fell in love with it as well!
So when I found this tutorial to make a Toothless plushie I decided that this needed to be another Christmas present! This will be my Christmas present to my nephew and I thought to go ahead and make one for each of my boys while I was at it!
This was probably one of the most challenging sewing projects I have done yet! There were about 25 pattern pieces!! And some of the steps were difficult to figure out but I did! And I am glad I stuck with it!
I enlarged the pattern pieces by 200%!! The final doll is a dimension of 36" from tip of head to tip of tail! (I found one online for not quite this big for $250!!!)
I can't wait to see their faces on Christmas! I especially can't wait to see my nephew's reaction when he opens his!!
Here are some pics (they don't do it justice...I am not a good photographer and could not figure out the best way to get photos to show you what these are like! Yes there are flaws (it is my sewing so there are going to be flaws!) but I still think they are cute!
Oh - and I probably should state I made these with black felt! Felt is very easy to work with :-) That was a plus for this project!
Here is a full body view - like I said they measure 36" from tip of head to tip of tail. The wing span is 45"!
Here is a belly shot - sorry it is blurry!
I'm ready for something a wee bit easier! :-)
