Michaelmas Dragon

Toymaking Magic Dragon Tutorial

The Michaelmas Dragon is a pattern and video tutorial for Toymaking Magic Premium Members!

(Yes! There are tutorials for the doll and the armour too!)

Watch the Introduction and Materials videos to see what you'll need!


Make a Michaelmas Dragon for storytelling, to display in your seasonal table, and for everyday play!

This project is a challenging one! It is not *difficult* but requires you to embrace *slowness*.

There are many pattern pieces, lots of sewing, many steps...and will take you several days to make it.

The result is SO WORTH IT! An heirloom quality dragon to enjoy for years to come.

Make a Dollhouse Doll or Standing Puppet Knight and a sword and shield! How about a cave??



* For a solid color dragon you will need three 8x12" sheets of felt OR one 18x18 sheet of felt. My green dragon was made using one 18x18 sheet of Woodland felt.

* For a two-color dragon you will need two 8x12" sheets in your main color and one 8x12" sheet in a secondary color.

** 1.5 oz (40g) of wool stuffing is needed


What to Make Next

Standing Puppet Accessories

Dollhouse Dolls

(AKA dragon cave!)
