Night Furry Softie Tutorial

My kids love dragons. Don't we all? For Christmas this year I wanted to give my son a Night Furry. So, I went about looking for images to make my own and came across a free tutorial at Mostly Nerdy Crochet. I love free, and that also means less work for me to design something from scratch. It is a very simple pattern to follow and work with.

Of course, I did modify the pattern a bit. I moved the wings to the side rather than both coming out of the back like a dragonfly. I dragon rider has to sit somewhere. I also added the prosthetic tail fin, used vinyl for the toes and enlarged it by quite a bit. I added some extra spines like the one from the movie.

Next time, I'd make it much bigger. But this one is just the right snuggle size for an almost 3-year old boy.
