All I have to say is: hats off to all of you plushie makers! This guy was a beast! I'm a novice sewer and this was the most complicated thing I've made to date, but boy is he cute! It took me several afternoons to complete since the pattern was confusing to me and I had to improvise a bit, but I am mostly happy with how he came out, and I think my swap partner is too! (How to Train Your Dragon Swap)

^^^ In case you want to make one for yourself. Smiley

I put weighted filler in his legs so he could stand up on his own and wires in his wings to help them have a bit more structure/posability. I also made his eyes out of polymer clay.

Cute! I'm going to save the pattern for this summer  Grin I have only made one sewed plushie (I ususally crochet them) in my life and I think I'm gonna need time to make sense of the pattern. After saying that, I love your Toothless  Wink

Thanks, guys! It's not my pattern, but I hope you guys give it a shot! The "official" toothless plushie released by Dreamworks or whatever leaves a lot to be desired! haha
