September Stuffie of the Month – Dalton the Dragon

September 29, 2014

Time for the September Stuffie of the Month!  This month I sewed up a pattern from Sweetbriar Sisters – the super cute Dalton the Dragon for my son’s 3rd birthday!

I let my daughter pick out the fabric for this cute dragon and I think she did a great job!  Mr. V loves the color blue so we knew this would be a hit with him.

Here are all of the dragon parts all sewed up with my sewing machine, just waiting to be hand sewn together!  This was my first all button jointed animal – the instructions in the pattern were great and I didn’t have any trouble at all attaching the arms and legs.

He has some pretty awesome wings and cute ric rac scales running down his back.

This was a very cute pattern and a pretty easy sew!  Here is my usual pattern recap:

  • Cute finished stuffie (CHECK). I think I would like to try this pattern in fleece as well – it’s adorable in cotton but not quite as cuddly.
  • Pattern layout easy to read (CHECK).  Great written instruction and illustrations to demonstrate a few of the more complicated steps – perfect!
  • Quick construction (CHECK).
  • Full size patterns provided (CHECK).

Things I learned:

  • Button joints really are not hard to do and give a different look to the stuffie – which can be very cute!
  • I am definitely still working on the art of stuffing a stuffie – but I think I get a little better with every completed critter!
