Free Pattern Friday! Haku Dragon Scarf


I’ve had the idea to do a dragon scarf for maybe a year by now, haha 😀 But I wasn’t sure how I wanted to tackle the head and also what dragon to do? I was torn between Haku from Spirited Away and Shenron from Dragon Ball. Well, I decided to just jump in and do it already, especially since Chinese New Year is this month. Obviously you can see who won out in the dragon decision <3 I had to keep my Ghibli project collection going of course!
I made this cutie from fleece so it’s extra warm and soft. The body is just made from several long strips going down the width of the fabric. The little stuffed head is added to the end to finish off the dragon. It was tricky for me because I wanted to keep the head shape simple and cute but also 3D, so hopefully it doesn’t present any problems for you all. You could of course swap out colors and features to make lots of other dragon characters too!

The project has a good bit of hand sewing and placing small, detailed pieces. Plus the body of the scarf is super long so that takes some time to sew as well. With all that in mind I gave it a 4/10 stars in difficulty 🙂 I hope you all like it and it keeps you warm this winter!

  1. Hi, Just downloaded the pattern (Can’t wait to make it!!) though I can’t seem to print it… Adobe says that printing is not allowed? Maybe I did something wrong….. HELP HELP HELP!!

  2. I love Haku from Spiritrd Away! I can’t wait to try to make this. I am trying to finish up the last bit of the kitsune as well. I just have to attach the head. Thank you so much for the patterns you create and the love you out into them.

  3. Thank you for the wonderful pattern. Happy New Year and many blessings upon you for sharing your talent and generosity!

  4. This is beautiful! Not tough if you take it step by step. You could use stretch velvets or stretch metallics if you want to vary the materials; if you do, iron-on interfacing on one half of the fabric will be your friend to keep the spikes standing up. Underlining to decrease show-through makes sense sometimes (test by putting your hand underneath, wearing a ring. If you can see your hand = not a big problem. If you can see the ring = consider stuffing with darker fiberfill instead of white on darker colors. If you can see the design or stones in the ring = underline this fabric) Have fun!

  5. Hi, I know that the Black Friday sales are over but is there still a way I can purchase the pattern for the narwhal plushie? 😀

  7. Thank you for such an adorable project. I purchased your sew basic book when my daughter wanted to learn to use my machine. We love it, such great starting projects! Can’t wait to sew up Haku as a prize for the after school anime club I run.

  8. hia, i love this pattern and printed out and cut ready to make. but i dont know if im missing something as i cant find pieces g and h 🙁

  9. Dont think it went through earlier.
    I love this pattern, all ready to go but is it me or am i missing something? I cant seem to fing g and h pattern pieces. Thanks very much x

    1. Pieces G & H are just straight strips you cut from your main fabric and trim later with pieces J & K 🙂 You can find them mentioned on page 5 with the cutting layout. The pieces are so big it would have been several sheets of paper to make them fit for printing, haha 😀
      I really hope that helps!

  10. Hello! Doesn’t anyone know a good website where i can buy fleece? I can tell find any fabric stores here in Italy…

  11. Hey there, just a question here… Would I happen to be able to tamper with the pattern and make it into a plush? Just though that I’d ask first. 😉

  12. Greetings! I printed out the pattern and read over the instructions and assembled. “G” is not included in the print out for the body itself. Only the F1 and F2 for the back spikes are there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      1. Oh good! So I hope that means you found them 🙂 That is that they’re just rectangles cut from the whole of your fabric. I hope working on it goes well for you!

  13. Amazing pattern! I love how my scarf turned out. I was curious as what interfacing you used. The interfacing I have only fuses on one side. How are you fusing the eye pieces to the head? Thanks again for a wonderful patter. I will definitely be looking for more patterns from you.

    1. Thanks so much! I actually use what’s called “fusible web” so it’s technically not an interfacing at all. It’s a sheet of adhesive attached to paper (the adhesive makes a web design on the paper). I typically use Heat n’ Bond Lite, but Wonder Under also works well for me too 🙂

  14. I finished making this tonight, love it! Did it with cheap felt for a tester, then made it with plush. Placed the body spikes in the wrong direction, but I don’t care.
    My 12yo is so happy with it she’s wearing it to bed.
    Is there any place for us to show you pictures of our work?

    1. I’d be happy to send you this pattern 🙂 If you wanted to email your address/P.O. Box to me, or I could set up something on Etsy if you’d feel more comfortable that way.

  15. is there any other fox patterns because I want to make a 9 tailed fox but like if in was walking instead of it sitting down just question/thought

  16. Hi! I really like this pattern and I was wondering if I am allowed to sell creations based on your patterns. (Of course, credit would be given to you for the patterns)

    1. Hello! You are certainly welcome to sell items you’ve sewn using the pattern 😊 A credit back to me would be very much appreciated. Thanks so much for asking first!

  17. Is there a way you can adapt this to actually do shenron from DBZ? 😂 My bf likes dbz, while I want this one from spririted away for myself

  18. hey, sorry to bother you, but i was looking at the pattern pieces, and i noticed that neither H or G appear to be there. idk if im an idiot and am just confused, which is entirely possible lol, but i just thought id ask what was up with that lol

    1. Hello! Pieces G & H are made by cutting strips from your main fabric, then trimming off the ends using the templates ♥ You can find it in the instructions on page 5.
      I hope that clears things up for you!

  19. hello! i love this pattern. I was wondering what the use of cutting an inch off of the fabric is. Is it to remove the selvedge edges?

    1. Hello! I’m glad you like the pattern! To answer your question, if you cut the scarf pieces straight from your fabric, piece H ends up a little bit longer than piece G because of its curved shape. So if you trim it a little shorter, it helps compensate and it lines up better with piece G 😊 I hope that clears things up!
