handmade felt baby dragon

You don't need to wing it

This mythical creature is an all-time crafter favorite from our stuffie collection! This friendly felt dragon is hand-sewn from three shades of our blueish-green felt for a tonal look, which makes him look a bit like a water dragon. To get started on this project, check out the tools and materials list on the right-hand side of this post. Then, download the pattern and tutorial.

Because this felt dragon requires more construction knowledge than some of our other stuffies, this is a great intermediate project.

As with all of our felt animal stuffies, we have a step-by-step photo tutorial for you to follow along when making your felt dragon. Of course if you have any questions, just reach out. We are always here to help!

To make our felt dragon look more realistic, we stitched both sides of the wings. They are also wired so you can move them. And the spines that run down the neck and back are sewn into the seam. 

We think this project will be so fun for anyone who loves mythology, fantasy, and folklore! Whether you craft this felt dragon for yourself or as a gift, we'd love to see your version. So make sure to share it with us on our private Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia.

Crafting tip: Try sewing more dragons using red or green colored felts.

How to Make a Felt Dragon

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern on the right hand side at the top of this post.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern using a Cricut Maker or scissors.
  3. Sew the legs to the underside piece using two strands of matching embroidery floss and a whip stitch, working from what will be the inside of the legs. Match and follow the curve of the leg openings, and ensure that the legs are facing the right way.
  4. Repeat this step for all of the legs.
