1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mecha Dragon from Mega Man 2 on: November 20, 2014 05:44:23 PM
Hi peeps!

This is my first time posting a project, so I thought I should make it a good one..... Cool
So I spent two years crocheting these tiny granny squares then sewing them together. 

After all that work and much much yarn I ended up with a very large dragon that will not fit in my room......

Or a one car garage.

Just a bunch of full sized adults lounging around on a dragon.

I made a pattern from an 8-bit Google image of Mecha Dragon from Mega Man 2.  After I had the pattern I realized I had to make really small squares if I wanted the dragon to end up a manageable size (did not happen....).  After I had finished I put him in a bathtub and tried to wash him, which basically involved me walking and jumping on him. 

I unveiled him at a long weekend get away with a bunch of engineer friends who did all sorts of nerd stuff to try and figure out how many squares he was comprised of, unfortunately (or not) I consumed too much beer and can not remember their final answer.  I'm super happy with him, but unfortunately I do not have room for him and he is currently stored in a suitcase.

As I was making him I was imagining him being discovered by a future generation (like dinosaur fossils or caveman drawings) and trying to figure out what it means.  Shocked

Thanks for looking and if you have any suggestions of what I could do with him I would love to hear them!
