I’ve got a new plush pattern I’ve added to my shop!
This time last year I released my Long Dragon Plush pattern, and ever since then I’ve had it in my mind to try and make a curved version that you can wear around your neck. And so I gave it go! The pattern shows you how to make either an Eastern-style or Western-style dragon with an extra long curved body that is cute on its own or can rest around your neck like a fun accessory.
If you add in wire to its body, it’ll make it posable so it fits even more snugly against you and you can twist the tail in fun ways to boot! The wire isn’t absolutely required for the project, since not everyone is interested in hunting down hardware. But I highly recommend it since it makes the dragon a lot more comfortable ♥ And it might help to know that I tried a few different wires, and it only needs armature wire, which is usually easy to find in craft stores.
I must admit this might be my favorite project to date 🙂 I really hope Renaissance Faires get to come back soon, since I can’t wait to wear one of these out and about!
As usual, the pattern comes with applique templates for the eyes and other details. But you can also purchase embroidery files separately.
To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through the 3rd of February <3 Meanwhile the embroidery will be 50% off. And as a fun start to the new year, all my dragon patterns will also be 20% off, and the rest of my shop will be 10% off. I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you do, you might be interested in this bonus!
Given the Eastern & Western options for the dragon, it seemed too perfect for making both Haku (from Spirited Away) and Toothless! And as I made those two, I realized the pattern would be perfect for Dratini and Dragonair as well 😀 So as a bonus here’s a guide to download to hack the new pattern into these fanart variations! There are applique templates included as well as embroidery files to download for the new faces. I hope everyone enjoys getting out there to make some new dragon buddies!

So excited about this one! It’s my birthday soon, and I was going to make Simplicity’s shoulder dragon for the occasion, but I think yours is even cooler!
I was going to the same… I love this pattern so much
These are so awesome and I love the fanart hacks!! I had to buy it! Thank you!!
I NEED THIS TO LIVE!
I also need an open fabric store in the plague.
Is this pattern free?
Unfortunately no, but the additional fanart hack pieces are 🙂 And also the pattern is 30% off for the next week ♥
This is amazing! I’m practically legally obligated to make my older sister anything Toothless related, and this will make her actually scream. Thank you!!
This is wonderful – Thinking that with some clever zipper insertion (and filling adjustment) you could have a heatpack inside one of these that comes out to go in the microwave.
This one is a must have! New dragons to add to the family, yay!
Thank you! I have the green western dragon cut out on my table now but next lol toothless!<3
That’s fantastic! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the pattern! ♥
Missed the sale but definitely on my wish list!
are the scales for applique or just embroidery files?
There are scale applique templates included as well 🙂 They’re just little circles, but they’re there, haha!
Love love LOVE the dragon pattern. Any chance of a Raya and the last Dragon fan hack with Sisu???? Please please please?????
Thank you for the suggestion! 🙂
I loved it SO MUCH! Yo should make more of these like rgvt78 said!
Love this dragon so much!
By any chance, could the fan art hack pattern pieces be used with the merfauna pack?
Unfortunately the Merfauna pack has different shaped heads, so that would be the main hinderance 😕 The 1-piece body is the same though, so if you could find a way to make the head work you would be good 😊
