Dragon Plushy From T-shirt

Introduction: Dragon Plushy From T-shirt

About: I don't think I'm necessarily cooler then anyone else, but I enjoy my life regardless. Tswee! P.S.: I'm pretty cool though ;)

for valentine's day, I wanted to make something unique for my boyfriend. (Ugh, candy hearts)
We both like George RR Martin's novels. So I wanted to do something dragon inspired.
I searched for a dragon toy, but to no avail.
So I decided to make my own stuffed animal.
It didn't come out quite as I planned, but its a dragon none the less and its the thought that counts, isn't it?

Step 1: What You Need!

fabric. I used a black T-shirt. size XL
some paper & pencil to sketch
scissors
needle and thread
Sewing machine (optional/ not depicted)

Step 2: Sketching and Making the Stencil

pretty straight forward. I used google images to get some inspiration

Step 3: Cutting the Fabric

lay the paper stencils on your shirt and draw them out.
Remember to flip the stencils (not like I did)
Also note that you will need 4 legs and 4 wings

Leave enough space for the stitching

Step 4: Sewing

stitch the pieces together
Leave open a space in each of the pieces so you can turn them inside out again.

Step 5: Turning Inside Out

use a chopstick/pencil to help you turn the pieces

Step 6: STUFFING

I cut up the rest of the T-shirt in to small 2cmx2cm squares and used those to stuff the pieces

hand-sew the limbs to the body

Step 7: Send With Love!

As you can see it was a terrific hit. My boyfriend loved it!
