Sock Dragon

sock dragon

After designed, developed and shared several sock toy sewing patterns with you, here is another sock toy pattrern which is more challenging to sew, Drake the sock dragon. If you have mastered the sock toy sewing skill from the previous sock toy pattern, then probably you will find this not as tough as it looks.

Drake the sock dragon is the evolution specie from the Japanese famous reptilian sea monster, Godzilla. Unlike it’s ancestry, Drake is a kindhearted dragon who affectionates on peace and love. Drake no longer an amphibian, it can’t live in the water, instead it develops a pair of wings for him to fly. However, Drake has inherited the furrowed brows, Spiky back and tail and strong foot. It’s feet and arms are shorter as it needs them just for walking and hugging. Drake has grown a bigger tummy which make it a little clumsy to walk around. It prefers to sit down and relax by the river and fishing for it’s meal.

Drake is slightly difficult to sew as it has more parts to sew and attach. In order to ease the sewing a little, I have made the templates for the arms, feet, wings and spikes. You can get all the detailed instruction and downloadable pdf template in page 2.

Frankly, if you find that sewing all those little parts are so time consuming, you may adapt the wings and spikes to using felt. Trace the spikes on a piece of felt in a continuous form, cut it out in 1 piece and sew it on the back.

“Gimme, gimme, gimme a BIG HUG!!!” Drake the sock dragon is asking for some TLC. It is also hoping to see and meet it’s relatives soon. Please sew the sock dragon and show us when it is done!!!

  1. Ahh, Joanne! Your sock critters just keep getting cuter all the time!!!

  2. Hi! This little dragon is DARLING!

    But I can’t get PDF version of the tutorial to display.

    All I get is the three-page version, not the version with the directions and all the photos of it being assembled.

    Can you help? I’d love to make one of these.

    Thank you!

  3. Drake is so cute! One of these days I’ll be ready to tackle a project like this. Thank you for the detailed tutorial.

  4. So cute, can’t wait to try this. Thank you.

  5. Can’t believe this cutie is made with just 2 pairs of socks!! Thank you so much!! This is a great tutorial!!

  6. Joanne, I have to say that you have a wonderful design perspective. The things that you can do with socks is unbelievable. I thought your owl was the best…but now Drake has got to be the cutest dragon any little child would ever want. Thank God for the insight to give you the abilities that you have. And Thank You for sharing them with us.

  7. He is the cutest thing ever!! I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for later this morning that links to your tutorial:

  9. Hi there,
    I am a big fan of all your paterns. I tried to save the tutorial as a PDF file, like I did earlier with other paterns, but it doesn’t work. Did something change or do you have any tips on how download the tutorials? Thanks a lot!
    Kind regards a fan from Holland

    • Hi Imke,
      The new print button is not working well (just get to know it few hours ago). I am asking the team to look into it. Meanwhile, please use the old print button which I have just installed back (just below that stretch of buttons) to print and save it.
      Sorry for any inconvenient caused.

  10. Too cute, could you make a sock Yeti next?

  16. Hi, I love this page and all the sock projects ๐Ÿ™‚ I tried making the dragon but only had those socks with the toes so my dragon ended up looking like a platypus medusa haha. Thank you for this tutorial!

  17. Thank you for posting this awesome pattern!! I had a blast making a dragon this weekend. Here’s my results ๐Ÿ™‚
    Dragon 2

  18. It’s so cute, and I can’t wait to do it! I have all the materials already except for the most important one- the SOCKS. Do you mind if you could give me a recommendation of online and offline shops to get the socks from? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!!!!

    • I bought my sock from a local shop called Sox World. Heard that they import most of their sock from Taiwan. As far as I know, they don’t have online store yet.

  19. Are you selling this little guy? My daughter would LOVE this one. The colors are perfect.

  20. Just love your sock animals! Will you be creating any more?

  21. I’m expecting my first child and I’ve been trying to practice my sewing. This looks like it will be a fun challenge for me, and an adorable toy for my child once he’s a bit older.

  22. I had fun with this project using tie dyed adult socks.

  23. Hi
    I noticed that on the template it said not for sale, is that the pattern or does it mean that any cute little drakes I make I can’t sell?
    Kind regards

  24. Hi! I am making this as I am living you a comment. I love this creation of yours and so is my soon to be 4 year old son. It was suppose to be a surprise gift for his b-day but hard to do with a boy who’s constantly over my shoulder asking what I am doing ha! ha! ha! now he wants me to finish it today. I want to say how grateful I am to you for sharing all your creativity and work of arts. Than you a million times over!


  25. so cute!!! lovely

  26. Thanks for the wonderful pattern.
    I put some of your patterns on my website and linked back, hope you dont mind.

  27. awww this chap is TOO cute! perfect for my Nieces christmas present this year! thank you!

  28. I love this tutorial! I’ve only done a few projects before, and my sock dragon turned out great! It was fairly easy and took less than a day! I’m probably going to make another for a friend…

  29. I just wanted to say that your patterns are amazing, and that you are very creative and inspiring! Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

  30. Absolutely lovely and fabulous! Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Hey, I’m making this dragon now and I’m stuck with the brows. I can’t understand how the stitch is going. I looked at the owl tutorial but it’s not helping me. Can anyone help me understand this stitch?

    • Hi Linda, sorry about the the brows. Let me try to explain here, as you can see from the picture b, there are dashed lines indicated on the head. Sew a ladder stitch from left to right, then from right to left on the dashed lines. After you have finished with the sewing, pull the thread to make the brow bumps up. Hope this helps.

  32. Hej, just want to say thank you for your wonderful and easy to follow sock-animal-tutorials! I finished the dragon today, and my son loves it!
    Last year I made one of the bunnies and the sock monkey, it is really fun to make them!

  33. Thank you

  34. I am having trouble on drakes wings….you said to use a running stitch to make his wings look like bat wings. Well mine aren’t getting the definition to them that yours have…? Can you help me?

    • Hi Chantel, would love to help. Do you mind send me a photo via the contact form for me to have a look? Thanks.

      • I kinda just did them my own way…lol…but for my next drake, which im making now, I would like help with the wings. I’ll see if i can explain what I am needing help with….ok, the wings, you say to stuff them then use a running stitch to go over and around to make them look like bat wings, some definition! Ok, well, when I did that it didn’t look like yours, it didnt have the definition to separate the areas of the wings. I dont know how you got that without stitching to the other side of the wing, to get the tension needed to make the thread tight enough to get the definition. Thats the issue I’m having …hope you can help, thank you, Chantel

  35. This is sooo cool! I love the color combination, especially the rainbow colored belly and tail! love it so I featured it in my own blog: thanks again for this dragon’s cheap, fun, and so easy to make!

  36. Great tutorial! I tackled this before any of your other sock toys and adapted it slightly to make flared nostrils and dragon eyes from buttons!

    • OMG!!! The sock dragon is amazing and you did a very good job. I will share you picture in Craft Passion Facebook Page soon. Thanks for showing us ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. I made one of these, and it turned out so well! Excellent tutorial! The cost of the materials was very low and even with low experience I was able to make a great dragon!
