Night Furies are the elusive black dragons from the movie "How to Train Your Dragon." The main character's pet, Toothless, is a Night Fury. Making a Night Fury or Toothless plush toy can be a simple process for those that know how to sew, as long as you create a pattern. There's no need to know how to draw a pattern if you have a computer and printer handy.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Cut out the Night Fury from the paper printout.

  2. 2

    Lay your fabric on your work surface and fold it in half.

  3. 3

    Place the paper cutout on top of the folded fabric.

  4. 4

    Pin the printout to both layers of fabric.

  5. 5

    Using the printout like a stencil, cut the black fabric around the printout.

  6. 6

    Unpin the fabric from the paper.

  7. 7

    Place the fabric back together and pin the pieces together around the edges every few inches.

  8. 8

    Sew the fabric around the edges with a small zigzag stitch, leaving the head area unsewn. You will now have a fabric pouch.

  9. 9

    Turn the fabric pouch inside out.

  10. 10

    Stuff the pouch with stuffing.

  11. 11

    With a needle, sew the fabric on the head closed using a whip stitch. This will look like the dragon's mouth.

  12. 12

    Glue two googly eyes to the head.

Tips and warnings

  • To get the stuffing into small areas, try poking it in with a knitting needle or pencil.
  • If this is a toy for a baby embroider eyes on the dragon instead of using googly eyes to avoid a choking hazard.
