Free Pattern Friday! Love Dragon Plush


Hey everyone!
Being February you just know I had to do something themed for Valentine’s Day, but when I saw how close it was to the Chinese Lunar New Year I got especially excited! I tried to come up with a project that combined both ideas, and landed on a cute Eastern style dragon plush holding a tiny heart. Not too dissimilar from Valentine’s teddy bears, but I thought it was a cute twist 😀
The pattern also comes with templates to make it a Western style dragon as well, with wings and horns instead of antlers and whiskers. Either way, it’s slightly different from other dragons I’ve done because it has a more prominent snout and tiny little ears. All the small details do add up to a bit of hand sewing and careful stitching, so I’ve rated it 4/10 in difficulty.
I hope it will make a fun project for you all over this last weekend before V-day! ❤

And there’s a bonus! As some of you may know, I don’t usually do embroidery because my old machine was on the fritz for many years (and I just really love applique so much you guys, haha). Well, I finally got one this past Christmas so I’m ready to start sharing embroidery files to go with my patterns! I usually only made them for myself, so I hope they stitch out well for you. Do let me know if there are any issues so I can make them better for future projects!

P.S. If you’d like to see some behind-the-scenes work on the making of this plush, check out my Patreon! For just $1 a month, subscribers get all of my free patterns one week early. And the perks have been expanded so you’ll now get more behind-the-scenes posts as well 😀

  16. Hi! I would like to know where you get your fabrics! I can’t find anything like what you use on plushes!

  17. Agreed with everyone else I just bought myself an embroidery machine and can use tips

  18. I love your patterns and I’m sorta new to sewing but they’re so much fun to make and always turn out great. I so was excited to see this dragon because I’ve wanted to make a dragon plushie for a while but never found a pattern. I can’t wait to see how this one turns out.

  19. Hi, I’m having trouble importing your embroidery files to my machine since it only reads 4×4 files. Is there any way to remove the alignment for the face and body so the images will fit a 4×4 machine?
