Toothless Plushie by Supernatural28 Toothless Plushie by Supernatural28
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 :iconkaty-a: The link to the tutorial is here--> [link] and [link] also helped. Thanks so much! ;)

I painted them myself, but you can buy them pretty much anywhere--craft stores, walmart, even dollar stores have them I think. Good luck on yours!

Hi! I've been working on my own toothless for a few days now!
About 1/3 done. Hope I make it in time for my girlfriend's birthday.
And I've been browsing DA for toothless plushies as I go along, and yours IMHO is the best one!

I have a few questions if you dont mind.
1)How did you paint the glass pebbles? green and black at the back, then clear coat at the front?
2)Did you also stuff the wings with poly-fil?
3)How did you manage to wire the wings? One for each wing? Or do the wires go thru the body itself?

Sorry for bugging you :( and TIA

It's no problem at all, and thank you very much! For the pebbles, I did a mixture of green, yellow, white and black on the back in acrylic paint, and only did the clear coat over the back where I painted. There's nothing on the front, so you can see through the pebble to the back. I did put some poly-fil in the wings to give them a little shape, but not much since I embroidered over them. I did one long wire from wing tip to wing tip that passes through the body, so they would be able to stand on their own.
I hope this helps, and just let me know if you have any more questions, it's no problem to answer them!
Thanks again:)

The glass pebble idea for eyes was brilliant!
Thank you for the answers and tips.
Hopefully I can start working on the wings later today :)
I'm still having difficulty assembling the LQ pieces

The pebbles weren't originally my idea; I saw someone else do it and thought it was the best way to go about it. But good luck with the rest of him, it's definitely worth the time;)
