That is completely gorgeous! Another dragon-lover here, and I am so impressed with what you've done. It's the way you've made something so elegant but comparatively small. Wonderful colour, too.

He's utterly fabulous!!!!  Grin

I've just been looking for the book you mentioned ('Sewing Tiny Toys'), but the cheapest I can find it in the UK is 37  Shocked

He really is brilliant - well done you  Cheesy

As a fellow dragon lover, I must say GREAT JOB!!!

And as a crafter, I have a question:  what did you use to make him posable?

Very well constructed, I love how it looks realistic (for a dragon.) so wisted!

Someone tipped me off that Photobucket was down so I've uploaded my dragon pics to Craftster instead. Sorry for the mysterious disappearance.

I saw some nice new comments/questions but I gotta run--I'll reply later tonight. Thanks folks!

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments!

Fenn, Sewing Tiny Toys is unfortunately out of print, so it's hard to find here in the US, too. I found my copy in my local library, so maybe try yours? I can't recommend the book highly enough...most of the projects (almost all of which are animals) are simple yet look realistic.

amysewstx, I used a combo of 20-gauge wire (I'm not much of a sewer, more a beads-and-wire gal) and chenille stems.
