Pattern Hack! Night Fury Hoodie

Halloween is fast approaching! So I thought I might share this fast costume idea 😀 It’s an add-on of sorts to my cosplay hoodie pattern, but it works just as well with other hoodie patterns or even with a hoodie you might already own. It’s all the extras you need to make a Night Fury hoodie 🙂

The pattern comes with templates for head spikes, horns, back spikes, applique face templates, and wings as well as instructions for how to insert them into my hoodie pattern. It could even work for the shrug pattern from earlier this month! If you’ve got some sewing experience, it’s easy to see how these fit into an already purchased hoodie as well. Altogether you’ll have an awesome costume in no time!

Free Pattern Friday! Night Fury Plush

Well, you guys asked I did my best to deliver! I got a huge demand for a Toothless pattern after releasing the Totoro plush pattern, so I thought I’d give it a go. Hopefully I didn’t disappoint 🙂

I saw some awesome free Toothless patterns already available, so I wanted to see if I could contribute something different but still cute to the mix.
Unlike some of the already existing patterns, it’s not 100% realistic to the proportions in the show, that way it looks a little more baby-like and cuter. It’s got a flat, floppy body much like my bat plush, but still has all of the major details that make Toothless what he is 🙂 Lots of spikes along the head and body, and of course the red tail fin with Viking skull motif.
I must admit there was something really comforting about hugging it because it had so many things to grab onto, haha.

I gave it a 5/10 in difficulty because of all of the tiny details involved as well as the curves sewn in making the body. So it takes quite a bit of time to put together but I really felt it was worth it when it was all done. As you can see I made a dark blue version so you’ll be able to see what’s going on in the step by step instructions instead of a big black hole 🙂 Shall we call this new dragon a ‘Twilight Fury’?
But I think the new color also shows how you can use the pattern to make different kinds of dragons as well. For instance I think its shape and silhouette would make a cute charmander or charizard.
