Handmade Dragon Toy






The eyes arrived for my dragon toy today! He's my favourite little toy creation so far, I think he's so cute! I need to think of a name for him soon. He's made of felt and an old cotton shirt that I used to wear a lot at university and he's all hand sewn. I'm really keen to make some more, but I have ideas for other toys and I can't seem to make them fast enough.

He is very cute with those huge eyes!
Do you design all your own toys or make them from patterns?

You do very beautiful puppies and your drawings are so nice. I really like your creations.

Hiya Penny!
I design my own patterns. I found a 70s toy making book in a charity shop and it gives tips on turning 2d drawings into 3d toys, so I learnt from that really. I consider myself a beginner though. I'd really like a sewing machine as at the moment I'm hand stitching everything and it's very time consuming!

Name suggestions: Tiamat, Bahamut, Jormungand... Come to think of it those might be a bit too hardcore for this breed of dragon!
