So after two weeks, this is my Toothless plushie! I've been reading how long it took other people, and I'm amazed. I was expecting this to be a three or four day project at most, and it turned into a twelve day, 68 hour project. Roughly. But whatever, it was totally worth it.
Toothless is 100% hand sewn, including the embroidery (which was a pain to do by hand). I scaled down the pattern by about a third, so he measures 13 inches from nose to tail and has a 16.5 inch wingspan. The body is a type of fleece, a little bit softer and plushier than normal fleece. His claws are a scaly kind of material, glued together to be two-sided. His eyes are those little glass pebbles that people use in fish bowls and flower vases, painted with acrylic paint, sealed with a clear coat, and super glued to the fabric. His legs are filled with little plastic chips from a bowl making kit I had since I was little, and the rest of him is stuffed with poly-fil. There's a small red heart made of felt in his chest, which I have to do with all my plushies, and finally, I put wire in his wings so they're not floppy.
I still have to do his tail piece, and once that's finished and he's completely done, I will update this picture and put some different views of him on.
He took a lot of patience to make, but I couldn't have done it without the pattern made by
