A few weeks ago at work my mom said "I gotta get you to make me a little critter for my desk too!"
Let me preface with the fact that my mom, sister and I all work together. I had made these (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367673.msg4321315#msg4321315) little amis for my sister that are now on her desk. So apparently my mom wanted one too. The thing is, my mom isn't "into" little woodland creatures like Jessie is...
She does however love dragons. I tried to find a pattern for a dragon but none of the ones I found really struck my fancy. After getting discouraged that I wouldn't find a pattern I liked, I decided I would try and wing my own. Not entirely though, I basically pieced together a few patterns I already had. I used and altered the body, ears and tail of the fox pattern I made Jessie, I used the wing pattern from this bat (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362837.msg4259831#msg4259831) and then figured out how to make spikes on my own. I also figured out how to make a cube style pattern for the snout. Lots of pics...
Here is a front shot and an angled one.
Here is a picture to show his size.
And a side shot so you can see the spikes and his tail.
I am insanely pleased with how this little dude turned out and that I was able to alter some patterns to work for me and figured out other parts on my own. My mom really loves him and her baby dragon now has a home on her desk at work!
Thanks so much for looking, C&C always welcome!!
