It's a plastic screw and washer. You could also use button joints. Here's some ways of doing it :) www.idiotsguides.com/hobbies-a…

Thank you! ^_^ I'll use button joints. I prefer to keep my plushies as huggable as possible.

I think about 1" for the joints and 1/4" for the eyes? I just used what fit. :)

How do you install joints? I've never made a jointed plush and this little dragon looks so cute I have to make one! Also, where do you get safety eyes?

For joints, here is a fairly clear tutorial! [link]
You insert one section into the arm, and another in the body before pressing them together.
I usually get my safety eyes from local or big box craft stores, such as Michael's, Jo-Ann, Hobby Lobby, ect. Or you can order them online!

I have a few questions! =D It looks amazing and I am going to try it, so..

1. How many fabric would I need?
2. How did you do the ears? Your dragon has such a cute... extra tip in his ear?

I generally get a yard of the base fabric. This way I have some (or a lot) or extra if I mess something up or want to make more. For the fur I got 2 sheet of craft fur that they generally sell at my local store and just stitch them together. If you're buying by the yard 1/4 yard should be more than enough. That applies to the accents as well.

The extra pointy tips for the ears was added as an impromptu thing. You can add them before you cut out the paper pattern. Starting from the inner line, draw the shape you want, when add a seam allowance of 1/2in. :)

Do we cut along the outer black lines on the pattern or the inner black lines? O:

On the outer! The inner is the stitching line. :)
