I’ve got a new plush pattern I’ve added to my shop!
I’ve been getting requests lately for more anthropomorphic animals like the woodland animals I did a few years back. So while I hope to dig into making birds, unicorns, bats, and the like, I thought what better animal to start with than a dragon!
It’s a 2-legged standing doll version of one of my dragons, sized in proportion with my other human and animal dolls. So if you’re familiar with putting those together, this pattern will have a lot of similarities. As usual with my dragon patterns, you’ll find it has tons of wing, horn, and spike details you can mix and match for different looks. And of course, being dolls, they need some cute clothes! For this group I thought a pirate theme with a steampunk twist would be fun. So you’ll find instructions for a fun pirate coat, corset, tricorn hat, utility belt, goggles, and a staple skirt and pants.
Sadly due to the unique details like the horns, wings, and thick tail, they can’t wear all of the other doll clothes available. You’ll have the best luck with clothes that fit around the neck and shoulders, like the vests and cloaks from the Fairy Expansion Pack. That’s why this pattern includes some basic clothes so you can adapt them to suit your own designs ♥
As always, the sewing pattern contains applique templates to make the dragon faces by hand or regular sewing machine. You can also applique some of the details on the clothing, though the ones in the samples have machine embroidered details. If you wanted to try painting or hand-embroidering the details, I’ve included those templates so you have that option <3. If you do have an embroidery machine, you’ll find those files sold separately. Or you could also use the Floppy Dragon embroidery files since they have similar head shapes.
To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through next Wednesday, the 26th. Meanwhile the embroidery will be 50% off. All other dragon patterns will be 20% off, the rest of the shop will be 10% off. I hope you’ll give them a look! And if you snagged a copy of the new pattern, I hope you enjoy it!
