They are sooo cute!

I don't suppose anyone knows what size eyes he takes? I'm going to get the materials together first before buying the pattern (I hate buying a pattern then have to order my materials and wait like a month of twiddling thumbs)

I'm also a beginner/intermediate sewer (hand stitched some booties, machine sewed a nappy pouch and tried to sew some dresses for my daughter which turned out just ok...) so if anyone can tell me if it's really hard (or what the hardest thing about making these dragons is) that would be awesome!

Thanks for all the great comments, everyone! The second and third ones did go much faster than the initial one. I'm not sure exactly how much faster, because I don't keep track of my crafting time (I have three small kids with unreliable naps, so I get it in when I can, which is usually after bed if I'm not exhausted Tongue)

For the eyes, I just picked them off the shelf at the fabric store, and thought "Hey, these look good!" The hardest part has been that they don't have a seam allowance built into the pattern. She says add a seam allowance, and I did a really irregular job of it. I traced all the pattern pieces directly on and sew it up by matching the lines, which is annoying to me, and I could probably just be more careful when I'm cutting them out. The author of the pattern has an extra help file for help with understanding the directions if you have trouble (I had trouble with the feet, too)
