No storming the castle with this guy! …unless you storm it with cuddles!

Description

Storm the castle with cuddles!

Imagination can take you Anywhere!

Will your dragon be fierce or friendly or fiercely friendly? A variety of fabrics work well for this project, my favorite for optimum softness  and shape is 3mm smooth minky.

This sewing project is suitable for an adventurous confident beginner since there isn’t any complicated sewing for the easiest options and I walk you through each step with detailed instructions and photos to illustrate each step. However, there are a lot of pieces that bring this dragon to life. 

This makes a darling Brontosaurus! It was rather incidental, but we’ll run with it! This is the quickest and easiest option since there are no wings, spikes, horns or ears involved.

Your creativity is encouraged with variations to help you customize your stuffed animal. Variations can also help you plan for the skill level and time commitment of your project. 

  • Deceptively easy to make
  • Detailed  step by step instructions 
  • Photos accompany each step
  • Full size pattern pieces
  • Tips for best results
  • Variations included
  • PDF digital download, available instantly after purchase
  • List of vendors for various materials
  • Print only the pages you need, instructions can be followed on your computer or mobile device (or printed if desired)
  • Make them for a special child, event or even sell your finished plush
  • Prints on standard 8.5″ x 11″ printer paper.

"The Debonair Dragon pattern is an absolute work of art! Aside from being incredibly adorable, there are so many options for you to pick from, making the single pattern more like 3 or 4 in one. The instructions are very detailed and easy to follow with great photos along with them, making this difficult looking pattern an easy accomplishment, even for beginners. This is a large pattern with a lot of pieces, which may seem intimidating, BUT trust me, it goes together easily. 10 stars!!!! If you're even slightly interested in making a dragon, you need this pattern!"

    Wonderful pattern! So many options and easy to follow instructions with pictures to guide you. Don’t miss this cute dragon/dino pattern!

    I just love the whole pudgy line of softies, and this dragon is the perfect addition. The pattern comes with detailed directions, helpful photos and great check points to make sure things are looking right. There are many options to make your own unique dragon. The options also cater to both a beginner or experienced sewist. I love the tips scattered throughout that just help the sewing process go smoothly. My little guy loves the dragon and was so excited to examine every bit of him. I’m sure they’ll have wondrous adventures together.

  3. Rhonda Russell

    As a first time sewer of a plushie, I was worried that I might have gotten in over my head. But oh my gosh, the instructions and photo examples were terrific and led me straight to success! There are so many options to choose from and simple things like the eyelid placement makes each Debonair Dragon uniquely your own! I had so much fun making mine, it won’t be the last dragon I make and I am already planning another one of Rena’s amazing patterns.

    This pattern will make you say “Wow! I really made that!” The instructions are detailed and include lots of pictures. I love that we have so many options to choose from so that our creations can become exactly what we envision.

  8. Briana

    I didn’t know I needed this pattern until I got the opportunity to help test it. There are so many options for details, but all laid out in an easy to follow format with pictures for all the steps. My favorite part of RHS patterns are the “check points.” I’m able to figure out if or where I may have made a mistake along the way. I can’t wait to make a thunder of dragons to go with the two dinos I’ve already made from this pattern.

  9. Tracy Pitt

    This was such a fun dragon to make. It is easier than it looks, with the step by step photos and tutorial. Do yourself a favour and grab this beauty today.

    Oh I’m in love with this pattern. I love all the option to make your dragon one of a kind. There are options to fit your skills as well. Beginner to intermediate. I sew all by hand and I had no issues at all. I love how this pattern has playful yet realistic features. Great for the kid or adult in your life.

    Rena has excelled again!!!
    When making this pattern it’s important to read through it thoroughly, because there are so many options you will want to get your head around what you want to create before you get started. The options make the pattern achievable for beginners through to experienced creators. The dinosaur I made is just adorable and have chosen fabric and ordered claws for a dragon next.

    10 STARS!!!!
    This pattern is so incredibly adorable! Everyone who sees it can’t help but smile, There are so many options available within this pattern, it’s like getting a plethora of patterns in one. Such an incredible value. This also allows you to truly create a one of a kind dragon (or several ). There are a lot of pieces and steps to making this dragon, but please don’t fret. Rena is superbly talented at creating patterns that look intimidating, but are very easy to follow and allow you to achieve a wonderful finished product regardless of your skill level. Her instructions are very easy to follow and there are photos for each step. Beyond that, if you do get stumped, she is ALWAYS there to help you. I have already made this with several different options and materials, and all have come out great. I can’t help myself, I am still making more. That’s how great this pattern is! Don’t hesitate! Grab yours today! You won’t be sorry!

    Another fantastic pattern from Rustic Horseshoe. Complete with easy to follow instructions. I love the photographs and check points that take you through the making process. There are so many options for details too, you will want to make this many times. The hardest part was deciding which options and fabrics to choose. I highly recommend this for all levels of sewers.

    This was my first Rustic Horseshoe creation, and the pattern is one I plan on using over and over again! Rena Dearden has come up with such an expressively cute plushie and shared it with us through this easy to follow tutorial. There are so many variations, and the step by step photos and clear instructions make it easy to achieve whatever effect you are going for! Don’t be intimidated by the complex look of the finished product, the tutorial is very straightforward and Rena has broken it down into bite sized pieces. There are options for all skill levels: you will be amazed by what you can accomplish! I was privileged to be part of the group selected to test this pattern.
