A new baby dragon!

I just wrapped up a special order that should be heading to the UK and was so pleased with the final result that I HAD to share. Here is my latest baby dragon!


The requester asked for a red dragon with black spines and grass-green eyes. Of course, Clara at 6060.etsy.com came through for me with the most beautiful hand painted eyes. Aren't they just amazing?


This guy was a little change from my previous dragons. Instead of using Red Heart acrylic yarns, I used a soft yarn (like Caron Simply Soft). It gave the body a beautiful shine and looks more like real scales than the Red Heart. I think this may end up being a permanent change for me!


So welcome to the world, little baby dragon. May all your flights be happy ones.

And for those of you out there looking for a fun winter amigurumi project, the dragon pattern is available in my Ravelry pattern shop for only $4!

  7. Thanks Velma and Ames & Tash for the kind words. You guys keep inspiring me to try new things -- we'll see what comes up next!

    @Cheesy -- I totally have separation anxiety from my creations! I hate sending them off to their new homes. But once in a while I will get a note from the new owner telling me how much they love their new spiderling and it makes everything worthwhile!

    @Amy -- is that an official dare? ;-)
