My Dragon Toy Pattern design is missing something – a NAME!

Posted underA day in my lifeBlogInspirationsToy-making TIPS & TUTORIALS on2012-08-31 03:16:44

I am soooooo excited, 2012 is the YEAR of the DRAGON so I’ve been playing around with a new toy sewing pattern design…..

a dragon!!!!

dragon eyes pupil

A little while back when I asked if I should consider doing a course on How to design Soft Toys, there were a few people who were interested in knowing how I go about designing softies… so I thought I’d give you a bit of insight! πŸ™‚

First I think a LOT about what I want MY dragon to look like.

I ask myself, “what actually makes a dragon a dragon?” I need to figure out what features my dragon pattern must have to make it look like a dragon. Then I collect ideas over time, which can be from anything from gift cards to small ornaments.

I found this cheap, UGLY PINK ceramic dragon in a ‘dollar shop” a few years ago. The colours are soooooooooooooooooo ugly BUT I loved the idea of a sleepy dragon and the tail over her nose is too sweet!

Having a 3-D object like an ornament helps me to get an idea of the 3-D shapes I want to make. I kept knocking bits off this poor dragon and had to keep gluing him back together!!!

And I trawl the internet for hours….

sometimes months or years even, until I settle on what I want my dragon to look like.Β  The internet is an amazing place for ideas – the obvious one -a dragon tattoo!

I always add the word ‘CUTE’ in a tattoo Google search so hopefully I can avoid anything too vulgar. I found this one on the tattoosrtists.org website. STILL, I have to stop my imagination… I always wonder EXACTLY WHERE the tattoo is on the person…. ha!ha! : )

I even found a cute sleeping dragon cake for inspiration! This cake is AMAZING – I think it’s looks too good to eat!

I decide what I DON’T want MY dragon pattern to look like!

This is probably THE most important part of the whole toy pattern design process, well it is for ME! It’s vital for my reputation that the toy sewing patterns I design are UNIQUE!

I don’t want to copy anyone intentionally – or UNintentionally! So a big part of my dragon pattern research was looking at other people’s dragon pattern designs! I wanted to make sure that my dragon looks NOTHING like ANYTHING I have seen and ALSO, because a lot of my friends are toy designers, I don’t want my designs to be similar to their creations!

I love this cute fleece dragon pattern designed by one of my favourite toy designers, Mariska Vos-Bolman from DIY Fluffies in the Netherlands. Yoki is so distinctive, you probably even recognise him! That’s why I decided to make my dragon completely different and so mine will be a lying down dragon! :0

Another favourite soft toy designer andΒ  friend of mine is Jeniffer Carson who has to be THE actual queen of dragon pattern design! She even goes by the name of The Dragon Charmer!!!!

For many years I have thought I wouldn’t dare attempt to make a dragon as she does such an awesome job – BUT as it’s the year of the dragon – I thought it’s time I gave it a go! ha!ha!

Just look at the fabulous shapes of her dragon designs and the intricate details! Jennifer is is also a children’s author of fantasy books (of which I have signed copies!) and she makes all the fantasy creatures as patterns too – so much talent in one person… she is truly an inspiration!!!!

Then I put pencil to paper and draw some shapes…

toy pattern design how to make a dragon

ONLY then the sewing begins!!!!

I can’t show you too much as this is just a teaser blog post for my new dragon pattern…(ALL will be revealed later!)Β  … but here are some of the first attempts at making him, to show you how I design my sewing patterns.

I like to use calico fabric when I am designing my patterns:

Why? Well, because it’s cheap, and this is important as I can sometimes make many many versions of a design until I am 100% happy that it is cute enough to put out for people to pay for!

NOT only that. Can you see the puckers in the seamΒ  below the dragon’s eye? WELL – that’s NOT good!!! I am a bit of a perfectionist and I want ALL the seams to fit exactly…. which can take a lot of tweaking!


Dragon toy pattern design teaser

I use a dark / contrasting thread for sewing up the toy pattern prototypes:

Why? Well, because it helps me to visualize the 3-D shapes when I compare the shape of the toy to the flat 2-D paper pattern pieces I drew.

I use the actual craft eyes that I will use for the finished toy in the design stage:

Why? I like to play around with different eyes at this stage of the pattern design. It helps me to decide on eye colour and and more importantly their position. It is amazing how a tiny change in eye position or size can change the expression of the toy’s face!

Ooooh, before I forget….

The whole point of this blog post was because I need help with the MOST IMPORTANT PART of a the toy pattern design process – CHOOSING a name! Soooooo, I’m asking for suggestions. ONLY one rule – it MUST start with the letter ‘D’ oh and one other rule…. it cannot be ‘Darius’ (because I think that’s already taken!)

Oh and it’s a competition too!

IF you choose the winning name – you will win a copy of the Dragon Pattern when it is released!!!! YAY!!! Can’t wait!


NOW, I’m looking forward to your name suggestions!

  26. falkor the luck dragon

    Comment by Carol Smith on August 31, 2012 at 5:03 am

  27. Oops did not see the rule about the name starting with “D” so here is my real entry:). I think D’artagnan would be a good name for a dragon (u could call him Dart for short). I think this name would be cool because one of the musketeers was named D’artagnan and when I think of dragons I think of tough warriors :).

    Comment by Mary on August 31, 2012 at 5:04 am

  28. Daegal, Dax or Draco. πŸ™‚

    Comment by Elizabeth C. on August 31, 2012 at 5:04 am

    Comment by sjsiff on August 31, 2012 at 6:02 am

    Comment by kerry mcbride on August 31, 2012 at 6:06 am

  67. I think of Wales when I think of dragons, therefore Dafydd seems apt, as it’s Welsh for David, which is also the Patron Saint of Wales. πŸ™‚

    Comment by Amanda on August 31, 2012 at 6:08 am

  68. I LOVE the idea of a dragon pattern, I adore them, probably because as a child my nickname was ‘dragon’ given to me by my late father. Dragons still remind me of him so I would say Draeck which mean dragon in medieval Dutch.

    Looks very cute x

    Comment by Jenny on August 31, 2012 at 6:19 am

  76. I reckon diesal the dragon. Helps to fuel the fire in him πŸ™‚

    Comment by Rachael Poolman on August 31, 2012 at 6:21 am

  77. When I saw your dragon the name Drophy Dragon(rhymes with Sophie)popped up and then Dalico Dragon (instead of calico)

    Comment by Elissa on August 31, 2012 at 6:23 am

  78. My suggestion is Daffy. The dragon is the national symbol of Wales and one of the other symbols is their national flower, the daffodil.

    Comment by Lisa Smith on August 31, 2012 at 6:23 am

    Comment by Tori on August 31, 2012 at 6:28 am

  84. I think Dufus would be a fun name!

    Comment by Helen Smyrek on August 31, 2012 at 6:31 am

  85. Dormir because dragons should be a bit French!

    Comment by Elizabeth Renton on August 31, 2012 at 6:33 am

  86. Hi Pauline !
    I’m suggesting you the 3D name (just joking) the “Darling Dude Dragon” for your cute new Dragon stuffy.

    Happy Day !

    With Best Wishes

    Comment by zimmy on August 31, 2012 at 6:33 am

  87. My 9yr old DD thinks she looks like a “Demire the Dragon”

  88. I like Dylan/Dillan (Welsh names) for a boy dragon, or Dilly (from the flower daffodil, Welsh emblem) for a girl dragon πŸ™‚

    Comment by Michelle Knight on August 31, 2012 at 6:40 am

  89. Dormir means ‘to sleep’- so would be suitable for a sleeping dragon. Plus, I totally have that same pink resin dragon from the $2 shop!!

    Comment by Elizabeth Renton on August 31, 2012 at 6:40 am

  90. I think you should name your dragon Delia x

    Comment by Vicki naughton on August 31, 2012 at 6:41 am

  92. I think you should name him Denali. He’s a dragon, he’s white and all dragons love to perch on high mountain tops.

    Comment by Diana Johnson on August 31, 2012 at 6:45 am

  93. Dewy, draithus, delta, Dante, drago, daphne, dynastic, drachenstein, domo, drogon, dainte, daenerys (from game of thrones)

    Comment by Sam on August 31, 2012 at 6:48 am

  94. Dagmar The Dragon! That is my choice, it is a beautiful scandanavian name meaning glorious.

    Comment by Katie on August 31, 2012 at 6:48 am

  95. So many good suggestions – you’re going to have a hard tome choosing!

    I think either David (as in St David, patron saint of Wales, where the dragon is very important) or Daphne for a girl dragon πŸ™‚

    Comment by Simmi on August 31, 2012 at 6:52 am

  96. Dozy Donnegal or Dozy Daisy

    Comment by Susannah on August 31, 2012 at 6:53 am

  97. Hi Pauline, if it’s a girl dragon then I think Dakota (means friend) and I like D’Artagnan for a boy dragon. Good luck, giving someone/something a special name isn’t easy!

    Comment by Keryn Langridge on August 31, 2012 at 6:53 am

  98. My suggest is “Dino”

    Comment by Karin Juhl on August 31, 2012 at 6:54 am

  100. Comment by Bryher on August 31, 2012 at 6:57 am

  101. Dozer! Because I liked the ugly pink one with its tail over its nose, and everyone knows dragons spend a lot of time napping. Or Drowsy or Doozy. Maybe they could be twins. Arg, now I want to make a dwaggiefamily!

    Comment by Caroline Sandford on August 31, 2012 at 6:57 am

  102. I like the name Draco the Dragon :3

    Comment by Katy on August 31, 2012 at 6:58 am

  103. Daisy or daffney

    Comment by Shirley on August 31, 2012 at 6:59 am

  104. I think the dragon should be called ‘Dolly the Dragon’

    Comment by Victoria Pickup on August 31, 2012 at 7:02 am

  105. I think Delia Dragon for a girl and Daniel Dragon for a boy (after my husband!)

    Comment by Helen on August 31, 2012 at 7:03 am

  106. Dreamy

    Comment by Shirley on August 31, 2012 at 7:06 am

  107. Draco would be nice.

    Comment by Katharina on August 31, 2012 at 7:07 am

  108. Hi, I love dragons!
    I think Dargon, Dangor, Drogan, Drango, Dorang or Dorgan are great names for a dragon, girl or boy, because each one is an anagram of Dragon :0)

    Comment by Carol on August 31, 2012 at 7:09 am

  109. Dartainun noble, regent and fun.

    Comment by Tanya on August 31, 2012 at 7:11 am

    Comment by Di-day on August 31, 2012 at 7:29 am

  117. Hi Pauline, love your cute toy softies! I think a cute, coy, and sleepy dragon could be called “Docile Demetrius”. He would be an invaluable, loyal approachable friend!
    Kind regards, Christine.

    Comment by Christine on August 31, 2012 at 7:32 am

  118. How about Duke, Dewey, or Drat?
    And, though it doesn’t start with a D, my kids and I just finished reading the My Father’s Dragon trilogy, and the dragon in the story is named Boris, which I love and thought of as soon as I read the contest!

    Comment by Kierra on August 31, 2012 at 7:37 am

  119. I would like to suggest a very stately name for such an important Dragon.
    I would like to call him SIR DRAGONIOUS.

    Comment by Karen Cooper on August 31, 2012 at 7:38 am

  120. I love the name dusty or dinky so it can be for both a boy and a girl πŸ™‚ x x x

    Comment by Haley CARROTT on August 31, 2012 at 7:47 am

    Comment by Anne Ratigan on August 31, 2012 at 7:56 am

  122. Draco the dragon!

    Comment by Minette on August 31, 2012 at 7:58 am

  123. How about ‘Dougal’ (pronounced Dugal)

    Comment by Jackie Say on August 31, 2012 at 7:59 am

  124. Due to his green eye, I looked for shades of green beginning with d and found a rather posh Dartmouth, so maybe darty the dragon short for Dartmouth the dragon x

  125. I like Drake for a boy and Drucilla for a girl x

    Comment by Abigail on August 31, 2012 at 8:00 am

  126. I know exactly how hard it is to find the ‘right’ dragon. I took me months to find mine.
    I think yours should be Daphne.

    Comment by Melissa on August 31, 2012 at 8:07 am

  133. Idris. It’s a very traditional welsh name and dragons are our national symbol. It’s also quite. Friendly name I think:)

    Comment by Emma Cartwright on August 31, 2012 at 8:13 am

  134. Damian, Donald, or maybe Dillon. Or if it’s a girl how about Delilah, Dinah or Drucilla!

    Comment by Alison on August 31, 2012 at 8:14 am

  135. Druff – after Puff the magic dragon from my childhood. I still remember the words of that song. Daffy for a girl?

    Comment by Lilani on August 31, 2012 at 8:20 am

  136. Dawny would be a good name cos Dragons rest by day!
    Downy would be nice too. Both are easy for little ones to remember and say.
    I think Blue eyes would be wonderful.

  137. Sparky?

    Comment by Wendy Mansfield on August 31, 2012 at 8:27 am

  138. Dennis the Menace, Darline, Deethoven like Beethoven, or Dinestein like Einstein. Digbee! I don’t know. I’m sure whatever name you choose will suit perfectly. Like Duke Pendragon or something. πŸ˜€ something Merlin-y

  143. Ohhh, dragon pattern <3
    Hmm, if it's a boy dragon I'd call him Davey and if it's a girl dragon I think something over the top cutesy like Delilah would be fun πŸ™‚
    Can't wait to see the full pattern! My best friend loves Dragons and this would make an awesome bday gift πŸ™‚

  145. I liked Dante, but I see that is already suggested, so how about something silly (might already be sugested too, only did a quick skim!) and name him

    Dingbat the Dragon….

    Comment by Alison Unwin on August 31, 2012 at 9:13 am

  146. Seeing as dragons have a Japanese origin as well, I was thinking Dai the dragon. It means “Great” and its a unisex name.

    Comment by Aida Brazzalotto on August 31, 2012 at 9:29 am

  152. Not sure if my fb post posted! Dewey the Dragon or Drizzle the Dragon, as they are a Water or Rain Dragon according to Chinese astrology as they will be “born in 2012” and I think that the name should therefore be water themed!

    Comment by Sarah Moore on August 31, 2012 at 9:33 am

  153. Ember
    Cinder
    Jwala – means flame in Hindi
    Chikala – means little
    Ko – means fire in Navajo
    Ahi – means fire in Maori
    Ko-Ahi
    Iti Pakupaku is Maori for little so maybe shorten it to Paku

    My favourites would be Jwala or Paku.

    Comment by Angela ray on August 31, 2012 at 10:51 am

  171. How about Dionisio, Darwin, Dilbey, Dreamon (= dream on!), or better, since the dragon is a Welsh symbol, some Welsh names such as: Dylan, Dilys, Dilwen, Dai or Dafydd (= David, patron saint).

    Comment by Liz on August 31, 2012 at 10:51 am

    Comment by Marcy Peterson on August 31, 2012 at 1:35 pm

  226. I think “Danger” would be a good name for him/her. It would be kind of ironic as I am sure your dragon will be too cute to look dangerous in any way! My son was so excited to hear you have a new dragon apttern – I guess I know what toy I will be making him next! Thanks for all your hard work. Emma

    DUDE.

    Thanks. Janet Jones.

    Comment by Janet Jones on August 31, 2012 at 2:16 pm

  235. Well now, the dragon is obviously a boy and he will be sure to become a ‘beloved friend ‘to all, which is precicely what this name means…….
    DARWIN
    So that is my choice.
    I really would love to have the pattern to make for a spcial little 2 year old named Tom who loves animals. He has some Funky Friends already.

    Today 31st August is the 3rd anniversary of the day our son was taken from this earth, his name is Richard DEREK Meese and he loved dragons.
    Since it can’t be Rich the Dragon, to choose Derek the Dragon, would be a fitting tribute to my son’s memory.xx

    Comment by Deb Meese on August 31, 2012 at 2:29 pm

  238. My son is right in to dragons, and has many books with various dragons and names. I thought of him immediately when I read you had created a dragon pattern.
    If I were to create this dragon for my son, his name would be DreamKeeper. Can’t wait to see the finished product! Thanks for sharing your talents.

    can’t wait to meet him! x

    Comment by lesley on August 31, 2012 at 2:56 pm

  245. I wanted ‘Beth’ because my year-of-the-dragon girl (who’s about to turn 12 next month) is ‘Beth’ – but … since it has to start with a ‘D’ – my dad’s name is Donald, shortened to Dolan (D’oh!-lan) which is what my late mum called him as an affectionate nickname. Dolan Dragon. Sounds as lovely as my Dad – the best Dad ever – loving but mischievous, and with a fire in his belly to look after his loved ones at all costs! Perfect Dragon Traits!

    Comment by Foots Scott on August 31, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    Comment by Carol Smith on August 31, 2012 at 4:54 pm

  262. I think you should use the name Demetri Dragon (I think I spelled that right, lol)

    Comment by Tara Virgo on August 31, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    bend the rules a bit?

  268. Hi, I love D’artagnan as a name for a dragon. All for one & one for all…this would definitely be a dragon who would be there for you!! πŸ™‚

    Comment by Kathie Gentile on August 31, 2012 at 5:53 pm

  269. I like DARWIN because it means ‘dear friend’, although DEWI (means beloved) is also quite cute!

    Comment by MrCrankyPants on August 31, 2012 at 5:57 pm

  270. Daylyn or Daelyn the Dragon!

    Comment by tiara on August 31, 2012 at 6:08 pm

  271. Dewi is the known name of the Welsh Dragon and was named so after St. David. The name Dewi is one of the Welsh forms of the name David. I think Dewi is a fine name for a dragon.

    Comment by Aine on August 31, 2012 at 6:12 pm

  272. I suggest the name DARCY
    darcy the dragon is from a song of the same name – poor darcy gets into trouble with his fire but all ends well and the prople love him – am sure we will love this dragon too

    Comment by aandy on August 31, 2012 at 6:19 pm

  273. The dragon should be Dirk. This is my husband’s name–he’s more like a big teddy bear than a dragon, but it’s a good solid name.

    Comment by Patty Lupardus on August 31, 2012 at 6:37 pm

  274. My suggestion is Dakota. Its a Native American name which I think means Friend or Friendly !!

    Comment by Lisa on August 31, 2012 at 6:43 pm

  306. Hi Pauline
    I think a version of the Greek word for dragon which is ‘Drako’ for a boy and a girl version with long eyelashes would be Drakena. I can already see a boy made with blues and greens and a girl in pinks and purples.

    Comment by Deb Wratt on September 1, 2012 at 9:48 am

    Comment by Sophie on September 2, 2012 at 2:14 am

  324. Darcy could be for boy or girl, then when it grows up you can add Mr. or Miss to the name

    Comment by Patricia Breddy on September 2, 2012 at 2:31 am

  325. I like the names Derron, or Danton.
    The first meaning “Great” which all dragons are, from great friends, to great pains if they decide to steal your socks!
    The second meaning “Everlasting” much like the love, wonder, and whimsy of mythical creatures.

    I really can not wait to see the final product of your dragon design!
    The process has been a fun thing to follow ^_^

    Comment by Lisa B on September 2, 2012 at 2:33 am
