The Baby Dragon Plushie Tutorial by AntiqueGarden The Baby Dragon Plushie Tutorial by AntiqueGarden
(This is not meant as an offense to any newbie plushie makers who fail at making this. I have failed hard at simple things with more experience in sewing. Sometimes, fabric does whatever it wants and that's okay.)

Find the pattern here.

Read all of it before you start. My style of explaining might be a tad bit confusing otherwise.

As a wise person on Pattern Reviews said, you could scientifically proof that everyone knows somebody who needs a plush dragon. I've got a solution for this and you can see it above.

This is a pattern for a baby dragon (or wyrmling, as I like to call them).
If you make a dragon from this pattern, please give me credit!

Sell them for any price you want, but more importantly, give them to friends and kids and make toy drops out of them. Spread the love. Spread the dragons. Giving someone a plushie as a gift might mean more to people, even random strangers, than you think.

The pattern has been noob-tested and noob-approved with a variety of fabrics. It is perfectly safe for people with little sewing skill.

Take your time. Take your time with transferring the pattern onto the fabric, take your time with cutting it out, take your time with sewing the parts together, take your time with stuffing. Do everything with care. Enjoy the time you spend making the dragon. You won't regret it, it will pay off. I promise.

Maybe you will fail. Maybe you will derp really hard. That is fine. It may not feel fine, but it is. I can assure you, I have done many a dumb thing at quite the advanced sewing skill level.

Your dragon will be beautiful. That's a fact. One of the prototypes I made from the first version of this pattern looks like some sort of extraterrestrial pug. It can't get any worse than that. Yet the pug dragon makes me laugh every time I look at him.
What your dragon will be is beautiful, no matter what.

This is what I made of the pattern.

For comparison, this is what I made of my first attempt at a dragon pattern. There was many an adjustment made.

Find the button joint tutorial here.

Sorry for any typos and grammatical shenanigans I made. English is not my first language, no matter how hard my English teachers believe it.

Thanks again to ~Esktasy :heart:

YOU MAY NOT distribute this pattern for money, claim it to be your own (either as it is or with minor modulations) or copy it without my written permission.
YOU MAY, however, make as many wyrmlings as you like, sell as many as you like and donate as many as you like, because fuck capitalism.

Is it okay if I add arms to it and keep the wings?

Sure, just attach them at about the same height as the legs or marginally higher, depending on how thick the shoulder is. You could also sew them in between the main body part and the underbody gusset.
