I made this fellow back in December, shortly after series 1 of Merlin ended.




If you've watched the show, you know there's a big dragon involved, but the dragon I really like is the one that appears on Camelot's shield.




I've decided his name is Cuddles.

Uther will not be pleased.




Tough luck, Uther.

Cuddles only has the two hind limbs, so technically he's a wyvern not a dragon, but all the knights laughed at "Arthur Penwyvern."




His tongue is a four-strand braid of thread. (Yeah, that was a good idea.) Depending on his mood, it can either mean he's thirsty, saying "bleah," blowing a raspberry at you, or he wants a bite of your curry. And you'd better give it to him, too, because he can fry you like a Hot Pocket.

His eyes are a fetching copper color. They glitter, but you can't see that through the camera.




Like my other dragons, Cuddles' wings, tail and neck are wired. Unlike them, he isn't really poseable. His wiring is only for support.




Also unlike my other dragons, his wings aren't quite anatomically plausible. But hey, I makes 'em like I sees 'em.



"I vigilantly stand guard over Camelot from any and all--hey, is that curry I smell?"

I adore him. Very bummed I missed Merlin, though. Need to check if we get BBC still, we have dish and I have noticed several channels have gone missing.
Thanks for sharing.

What a cute dragon! From what I saw on sci-fi, he's much cuter than a wyvern! You did an amazing job of making him, I love it!

This totally rekindles my affinity for dragons. I used to think Draco was the best movie ever made!

I love him, great work. I will hope for a dragon like yours someday to share my curry and keep the cat and dog company!

You have vast talent my friend!

Aw, thanks everyone! And ::hugs:: to all my fellow Merlin fans. If you haven't checked the show out yet, it's a lot of fun.

Never seen so much detail in a plush. Great job!   Cheesy

I appreciate you saying that, as he's quite small (only 6.5" to the tops of his wings) so there was quite a lot of tiny stitching to do.

Cuddles is sitting on my desk right now, looking very pleased!

Thanks everybody! Cuddles is thrilled by all the offers of curry. I'm going to have to make sure he doesn't gain a little dragon belly!

Any chance you will be offering a pattern of this one too?  I've just got my supplies together for the other one

I've had some requests for this one so at the moment I'm thinking about it. (Mostly it depends on my schedule.)

And I'd love to see pics of the other dragon when you're done!
