    I took a break from finishing my current quilt to make a birthday present for my grandson. He is having a dragon birthday party, so I thought I would make him a dragon.

    I love making dolls and this sort of thing, so this was fun, but challenging. He has internal armature to keep him from flopping around, but is not really poseable. his head seemed small to me, and was not really as sculptable as I would have liked, but I guess he turned out fine.

    He's a beauty, love those fluffy whiskers, and his red coloring is just plain wondeful.

    He looks like he could hold a conversation with you. What a fabulous creation.

    I found the pattern on Clothdollpatterns,com. I searched for a long time for a free pattern, but no luck. But this place has everything. I could have spent a lot of money there. Over 1500 patterns they say. And lots and lots of different designers. I had to look at every single pattern. There are lots of dragons there. I chose him because of his kind face. But I may make some of the other types of dragons later when he is older. This one is for his fifth birthday.

    I did learn some new techniques, so that was fun, but he was a lot of work. I think if I made another I would make him fatter and his head a bit bigger, but that is just how I am. I have a hard time following patterns.

    Oh, the pattern called for green, but my husband decided red would be better. He picked the fabric. It is suede cloth, and the belly is a scale print in cotton.

    Looks great to me and will to him, too! Too small of a head! It's perfect.

    Oh, and the color really is red, a good true darkish red. He looks pink in the pictures.

    I never thought much about dragons before. He is amazing! I have made a lot of dolls but nothing as intricate as your dragon. Wonderful work! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Oh my gosh, lookit! What a lovely dragon. I'm a dragon fan myself and have quite a large collection of dragon paraphernalia. His face is my favorite part, I'd have to say.
