Here you'll find a variety of dragon designs from cute baby dragons, to the more "authentic" looking whimsical fantasy dragons. Most of which are designed to be sewn from from fur, but of course you can certainly sew them from the fabric of your choice, such as a medium weight woven fabric, perhaps in a fun print. Sewing a stuffed animal can even be a great way to use larger pre-cut quilting fabrics like fat quarters.


And since most of these designs are meant to be sewn from fur, you may find the following tips helpful:

Consider cutting your fur in a single layer, wrong side up. This can help you cut your fur more accurately (just remember to cut "opposites" of any pattern pieces that need it). And to avoid cutting into the fur itself, cut through the fabric backing only. And since most fur has a nap to it, remember to cut your pattern pieces in the same direction so that the fur in your finished stuffed animal will run in the same direction.

And since your pattern pieces will likely be quite small, it may help to cut them from lightweight cardboard instead of paper. Then, instead of pinning your pattern pieces to your fabric, trace around them with a pen, then cut your fabric pieces out.

And as long as you're not making your stuffed dragon to sell, fabric scraps can make a great filler for your softie. Or even cut-up old clothes. Or, traditional fiber fill is always a suitable choice.

And just remember that if you're making your soft toy for a baby or small child, to not to embellish your softie with anything that could come off and become a choking hazard like buttons. Instead, hand embroider eyes, noses, etc.
