Toothless Dragon


It has been awhile since I posted anything. I recently made a white elephant Christmas gift for my son to take to his teen group Christmas party. We got the material at Joanne Fabric’s for less that $4.00. It took me 1 and 1/2 days to make it. I used the a pattern I found here: I printed out this pattern twice as suggested and then just cut out one copy, which helped tremendously in understanding how to piece this together. Also having my son read the directions to me step by step helped. I had quite a time with the tension on my sewing machine until I realized that I needed to increase the tension. It really was a mess, Ha! It’s funny now, but wasn’t so funny then. Then after I completed this one, I decided that I had enough left over material to make another for a very special little boy for Christmas, so I did. I haven’t given it to him yet, but I think he will like it. I did have a better go around with the tension on the second one, but I had an awful time sewing the head on the second one. So, I absolutely will not be making anymore of these! However, I do think they are cute, and if you want to save some money on making gifts it will really only cost you a little cash and your time. Here is the toothless I made for my son’s party:
