Plushie Zwi will return
Around a year ago, I shared a few photos of a little dragon plushie I sewed, and mentioned I wanted to try making a Zwi version. Well I finally had a chance to do it — meet Plushie Zwi!
Sewing her was quite the adventure! I combined and altered two patterns from CholyKnight www.cholyknight.com and spent about five days sewing and stuffing. I started by printing and cutting out the pattern pieces, then traced them onto the fabric and cut those out. After attaching the eyes, I sewed the head. I had to hand-sew her horns onto her head, which was quite the task. Her body came next, but I ran into an issue where her wings attach—the fabric layers were too thick to fit through the sewing machine. More hand-sewing. 😐 But I got it done in the end, and she turned out great! Here are a few progress shots. If you want a step-by-step breakdown of each phase, check out this gallery. Hope you like her! For fans who haven’t heard, Zwi will be returning in the upcoming Steel & Stone/Spell Weaver sequel series Blackfire. If you missed it, check out the announcement post.
