Toothless Tutorial Part 1 by LavastormSW Toothless Tutorial Part 1 by LavastormSW
Finally, the long-awaited Toothless plush tutorial! It's taken me way too long to make this, but here it is! If you want to post this on Tumblr, please reblog it from my original post. Also if you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to contact me either in the comments, through dA notes, or my Tumblr ask box.

If you notice any typos, please tell me about them and I'll fix it.

Pattern:

Page 1 - Page 2 - Page 3 - Page 4

Directions to print out pattern: Copy/paste the pattern pages into Microsoft Word or some other similar program and fit them to the page. Alternatively, photoshop them to be 8.5"x11" and them print them.

This pattern makes a toothless that measures approximately 15 inches from head to tail and has a wingspan of about 19 inches.

Original pattern found here.

Thanks for making this - it looks much more clear than the other one. Does this pattern include the 1/4 seam allowance as well?

Are you aware that you refer to the pieces by the wrong name/letter in a lot of instances? I'm very confused.

I apologize about that. Could you tell me where I referred to them wrong? I thought I did a good job of proofreading before I uploaded it.

There are so many instances, I don't know where to start.
Nor do I have the time.

I'm really sorry! And certainly sorry for bugging you.

If you could name one, it would be a great help to point me in the right direction in fixing it. I tried to make the tutorial long and comprehensive with lots of pictures so people wouldn't need to rely solely on letters. I originally didn't have them on my pieces and went back and edited them in later for clarity, so that could be the cause of the errors.

I know this is super old but I think he means that the original pattern vs your pattern has a different letters for some pieces. I had a few problems with that but really if you just print yours and not assume its the same as hers everything should be fine. Anyway, its really easy to match up the pattern pieces to see what ones you need to use.

Ah, that might be it. I formulated my tutorial to my altered pattern, so if you use the one linked in the description it'll be fine.

I don't know the dimensions offhand, but they should be sized to fit the standard 8.5"x11" paper.

so with the head spikes with the part when u sew the to D pieces together do u stuff it before sewing it or do u leave a hole to stuu it later and sew the bottom it is hard to tell
Reply
:iconlavastormsw:
LavastormSW Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
When you turn the spikes right side out, the straight part should be open, allowing you to stick your fingers or a pencil into them. Finish sewing the head, then use little balls of stuffing to stuff the head spikes.

legendarydragonstar Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013
ok after u stuff it do u close off the holes so that when u sew the head on the holes aren't in the way

:iconlavastormsw:
LavastormSW Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You don't close them off. If you look at the "underside" picture near the bottom of the tutorial, the bottoms of the head flaps make a line. That line will be sewed onto the neck. It's a little hard to explain, but basically you'll be sewing the straight edges of pieces D, E, and A onto the neck of the body.

Wow just from glancing can see much more detail! So I was wondering if you could do a pabu tutorial? from Legend of Korra pic:images1.nick.com/nick-assets/s…
I don't really know if this is a commision, and if you can't, don't have time, anything such, totally understand! Thank you for this!(I mean the toothless tutorial:D)

I wasn't planning on doing a Pabu tutorial, but I'll put it on my 'maybe eventually in the future to do' list. It would be a while before I finished it, as I'd probably have to make the pattern, tweak it, then make another and take pictures, and finally make the tutorial. I'm not saying it'll never happen, but it certainly won't be soon.

Send me a note so I remember to if I ever do make it. I assume this will get a lot more comments than I get notes, so it'll be less likely that your message will be drowned out by others.

Would you consider this a hard or intermediate project?
What sort of fabric would you suggest?
Thank you for this tutorial!

I would consider this an intermediate project. I would definitely recommend having some experience sewing plushes, but it's not vital that you do.

When you say to set the patterns to fit the page, do you mean to make sure to select the option "fit to page" that our printers have when printing or do you mean to pull it open and remove all that extra blank white space on the pattern pages.

If it's the latter, will it still be ok to use the patterns if they weren't fit to the page that way or would it make it too hard to sew if they were that small?

Thanks very much C:

As long as the pattern pieces are big enough to comfortably work with, it doesn't really matter how big or small you print them out, just make sure all of the pages are the same size. It'll just change the size of your finished project.

What I do to print them out is I save the files as a .jpg, highlight all of them, right click, select print, select the 8"x10" option on the right side bar, and uncheck the box that says "fit picture to frame." (I use a PC, so if you have a mac it'll be something different)

I do all of this because after I printed out the original pattern, I digitally traced over and edited it to my liking, then saved the new files. When I printed them out, they were a different size than the original one and so I mucked around with the print settings until they came out to be the same size, which is where all the complicated settings come from. You don't have to use my settings, as I assume you've never made one before and aren't as particular about the sizing as I am.

TL;DR: Print them out however you want.

You're welcome! I tried to follow the other tutorial and I completely messed up because the directions were vague and it wasn't organized well.

Yeah the problem I had most was attaching the legs but I am making a second attempt at it! I didn't double-thread the first one but now I've learned a few things (I'm hand-sewing it with leather which I know might be a harder but if it works it'll look good hopefully)
By chance, you wouldn't happen to know of any good bunny plush tutorials would you? I've looked but there are no good ones! (I'm making one for my cousin's soon-to-arrive-baby)

Not off the top of my head, no. There are bound to be some patterns floating around, though. It also wouldn't be too hard to make a pattern for a bunny plush.
