These little dragon-like stuffed creatures are around 20 mm in height, and will surely make a perfect keychain or a cute doll that can be placed on your desk. However, you will have to make it on your own. To sew these endearing designs, at least intermediate crocheting skills are required. It also needs materials embroidery floss, sewing thread, crochet hooks, toy eyes made of glass or plastic, a beading needle, scissors, and a toothpick.

Using embroidery floss rather than using yarn helps to create a figure that’s very small in size. Amigurumi works are generally fantastical animals, crocheted to look as cute as possible.
