It’s all about the Dragons

So after I made my zombie, I found a free pattern for a Baby Snow Dragon. I discovered it whilst exploring Pinterest and it was written by Marjorie Jones.

The pattern was easy to follow producing lots of parts to be stitched together.

I’ve made at least 8-10 Snow Dragons for other people. As my experience and skill has grown, I have changed aspects of the pattern such as ears, spikes and added wings.

Recently I’ve also made a larger baby snow Dragon using two balls of wool and a 6mm hook.

I love how cute they are and enjoy thinking of small ways I can make each one different. šŸ™‚

    I love dragons, a few months back I made this one, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fierce-little-dragon šŸ™‚ it’s on my Ravelry page, but I’ve not put it on my blog!!

    • Snap… I’ve made that one too šŸ™‚ I’ll post about it later. I adapted the fierce dragon’s wings for the snow Dragon’s wings šŸ™‚ I also liked the way the spikes were crocheted so have used them on the Snow Dragons too šŸ™‚

        Despite the fact I can sew pretty well and do cross stitch, for some reason when it comes to sewing crocheted bits together it all goes wrong, the dragon I made is currently doing the splits, he’s sort of crash landed on his tummy with his little legs sticking out at the side!!

      • It can be tricky! I use lots, and and I do mean lots, of pins to help me before I even begin to sew. But even then you get wandering eyes and arms that don’t sit quite evenly. I figure it’s part of the resulting amigurumi’s charm šŸ™‚

      I stick loads of pins in, to the work and my fingers! Then find I can’t sew with them there and take them out!! Methinks I’ll stick to bags and doilies!!

  2. Despite gathering quite a few dragon patterns – and being totally bonkers about them in general – I’ve yet to brave actually making one, let alone putting my own stamp on a pattern as you’ve done, Mark – well done you – your dragon is gorgeous! šŸ™‚

  3. I love these, especially the green ones but the wings are a great addition. I’m not a great toy maker, they never look cute and the stuffing is never quite right, tempted to have another go!
