**THIS IS FOR A SEWING PATTERN, IT IS NOT FOR A FINISHED BACKPACK**
Instruction Language: ENGLISH

⌠ dragon plush backpack .pdf pattern ⌡

This listing is for a .pdf instant download of a sewing pattern for a backpack shaped like a cute stuffed dragon! The pattern includes 4 different wing, horn, and spike variations for a myriad of different dragons. The faces are made with machine applique -- templates for which are included in the pattern as well.
The backpack is styled to look like the dragon is clinging to your back and looking off to the side. It comes in two sizes -- small and large. The small is suitable for holding a phone and a few other essentials, while the large size is an epic statement piece that can hold a standard tablet. As an optional advanced technique, you can also sew a hidden zipper pocket into the tail.
See the backpacks in action here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BvfU_smpB6Z/

This sewing pattern has complete instructions to create the backpack from start to finish -- including step-by-step photos and a printable pattern. It includes extra info on choosing fabrics, tools to get started, printing your pattern, and cutting your fabric. This project is not recommended for absolute beginners, but I do my best to explain everything in detail for those rogue newbies that want a challenge :)

The face is done with machine applique, but embroidery files are also available. They are sold separately here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/684573575/dragon-eyes-machine-embroidery-file

An excellent companion to add to my plush arsenal! I had previously purchased the Plush backpack pattern and been really thrilled with how many cute options there were and versatility of modifying the base design to suit my needs. Looking forward to doing the same with this pattern and making a ton of wearable dragons! Thank you for another outstanding pattern!

I didn't follow the instructions correctly, in some parts. I also ended up basically making it from improper fabric with just scrap I found around the house. However, it still turned out completely fine and usable, which I consider the mark of a well made pattern! I needle felted the eyes and nostrils since I had no other way to make eyes without resorting to buttons. And of course, it still looked good! I am also fairly inexperienced, and the pattern and instructions were well made enough that I could still pull it off!

That's already the third pattern I bought from CholyKnight and I'm super happy with all of them! They're incredibly detailed and easy to follow - even for a beginner like me! Great work, thanks a lot!

What a wonderful pattern and amazing amount of information for very low cost!! The entire thing is extremely well thought-out and professionally done. It takes you step-by-step through every aspect of creating the plush dragon backpack. I never even bothered to print out the instructions, just read the the download and then worked my way from page to page; everything is so well organized there is no need to refer back to a previous step or hunt around for information. Additionally, it came with a free 42 page e-book on making plush toys, covering everything from how different fabrics will affect the look of your project to several methods of applique for facial features. I have been making soft dolls and toys for almost 50 years and the book accompanying this pattern is absolutely the best overview I have seen.
