Here Be Dragons

The staple of any classic fairy tale involves knights and dragons, and usually a beautiful princess as well. Coming fresh from the Desolation of Smaug, and how all I really want for Christmas is a Night Fury, I’m sure you can tell that dragons are some of my favorite fairy tale creatures. While there’s no place to buy them, I’ve rounded up a few ways for you to make them!

First, for those of you who’d like an adorable stuffed toy, DIYFluffies on Etsy has a great pattern available for $9.oo. This little guy’s name is Yoki, and at 10 inches tall, he is a great gift for any little geek  or princess. You can sew him with fleece, felt, and some glass eyes.

Next, for all you crocheters out there, Sarselgurumi has a great tutorial for creating an amigurumi Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. Made with only one skein, an F hook, some batting, and of course, lots of love, this irresistible Night Fury is sure to capture everyone’s heart.

Here’s sending you all great holiday wishes of crafting and geekiness!
