Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you all are excited for 2017! Which also means it’s the fourth anniversary of my blog 😀 It started back in 2013 and sometimes I can hardly believe I’ve kept it up for this long <3
It felt like 2016 had a lot of ups and downs for most people, so I’m glad to have a fresh start. Though it does sadden me to say that this will be the last iteration of the monthly crafting challenge 🙁 As some of you may remember from December, I announced that I’ll have to end the crafting challenge as a feature on my blog because it’s gotten too big for me to keep up with all of your amazing submissions! I decided to extend the Legendary Creatures Collection for one more month as a thanks to all of you. But on February we’ll do a proper send-off with a contest and a giveaway!
And of course I still plan to post regular free patterns as I usually do, as well as patterns available for sale, and other free promotions of different varieties <3
But onto the fun part! The last plush!
Of course you might remember I did a dragon last year in February, but I thought this would be a nice fitting tribute to bring the challenge back full circle 😀 It was definitely my most popular pattern of that year, and a lot of new fans lamented that they didn’t get a chance to earn that one. And to be honest, I had hoped to do the original dragon in this style, but I couldn’t make the prototype work for me at the time – I kept at it though! Which is why we have this little cutie now <3 I especially love him for all the extra little spikes on his tail, head, and nose. And I’m a huge fan of the big horns that give him so much character. You can rotate them different ways to give the dragon lots of interesting looks.
As for difficulty: This one has a lot of tiny pieces like the spikes, tail, and feet. So it’s best to position them carefully and check on them frequently as you sew. With all that in mind, I gave it a 4/10 stars in difficulty.

Oh no :/ I’m sorry I didn’t get your Werewolf photo! I don’t see it in my email so something must have went wrong there. Could you try resending it?
I just wanted to say that I think it is amazing that you’ve done this for so long. Your patterns are wonderful and being able to get them through trying out other patterns is a really cool thing to do. Your patterns are also very reasonably priced and your instructions are fantastic. I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work and I look forward to making myself a little dragon!
Wow, thank you so much! That means a lot ♥ I’m so glad they’re easy to understand and fun to make!
Wanted to share this pattern I finally finished sewing. I did it in felt. THank you for the free pattern.
Uh oh, it doesn’t look like a photo attached? Do you think you could try again or send it to my Facebook? (facebook.com/sewdesune) I look forward to seeing it!
Hopefully it’s not to late to get your last MCC pattern! I’d been looking for a dragon and yours is perfect! Attached is my Pretty in Pink Batty.
I’m so glad you like the dragon! Though it looks like your little batty didn’t get attached 🙁 Could you try again? Or maybe email it? Thanks so much!
Hello! I wanted to send in one of your patterns that I have made to get the dragon pattern for this month. In time for Valentines day I made the love koi you had posted for my gf and I! 🙂
Aww! That sounds awesome! Though I don’t see any photo posted.. maybe there was a glitch. Could you try resending it? Thanks so much! 😀
