I'm still a little new around here, so I really hope this counts as a toy, doll, or plaything. Really he's a plushie, hand and machine sewn with fleece. He's 66 inches from nose to tail and has a 88 inch wingspan. He took me a couple of weeks as a side project (commissioned by a friend of mine) and was much more of a success than I expected.



He was a lot of fun to make, even though I'm not very practiced at sewing. He was made with my own pattern after I tried a design from someone else a few weeks ago and it turned out looking like an overweight bat-lizard. Seriously.

If you would like to read a little more about my project and see a few more pictures you're welcome to check out my blog: http://mostlynerdycrochet.blogspot.com/2011/03/its-times-like-this-that-im-glad-i.html

Thanks for looking!

Amazing, love him. You did a great job. I checked out your blog too and the crocheted things you made were also super awesome. inspiring. I know many a kid (and a few adults) who would love a toothless like that. I was just thinking that it is better than the things I have seen in the stores.

I think he turned out very well!  I had no problems w/the pattern from DA.  I used Spirit of America's pattern though.  I didn't understand Katy A's pattern.  I made 3 Toothless' from Spirit's pattern, and they all turned out well.  I have to admit though, it was a challenge the 1st time around.  Would you consider selling copies of your pattern?  I love all manner of Toothless'.  Long live, "How to Train your Dragon"!

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much everyone! I had no idea that everyone else loves Toothless as much as I do! I'm just so overwhelmed by the generous comments and encouragement! I hadn't really thought about selling a pattern, but I'm open to the idea! I've had a couple of friends commission more Toothless plushies so I'll certainly get enough practice to make sure my pattern is solid!

I'm seriously just so thankful to everyone who has looked and commented on Toothless. There's nothing like the feeling of a job well done! Thank you!!!

What an awesome rendition, really just spectacular.
I can't show this to my kid or there will be endless begging and tears to make him one for SURE.
If you put a pattern up for sale make sure to let us know, please, as I will be one of the first in line.

I checked out those patterns on Deviant Art, they look doable! I'm going to give it a try, my son will fall over in glee if I present him with a Toothless stuffy.

I really really appreciate your interest but I've been using the pattern to sell the plushies and I need to keep it under lock and key for now. There are several free patterns on deviant art though! I really recommend you check it out!
