As part of the Harry Potter Craftalong I made these:
To practice the shrinking solution I first used it on inanimate objects, beginning with a book, which is fairly small to start with, then I progressed to my travel case/chest (actually this was an accident, I spilt some on it as I walked past...must perfect the swelling solution next to fix this issue), then I went on to shrink the TV at home...ha!  still works just very tiny...and then I wanted to do the main event and an animate object...A DRAGON!  So I went outdoors to find me a dragon and came across this lovely common Welsh Green dragon, convinced him to eat a steak I had laced with the shrinking solution and vwala a lovely little dragon that I can now carry around in my pocket!

Started with my book:








Oops I shrunk my HP travelling case with sneakascope inside






Oops...I shrunk the TV!


(It is also going to be the head of a robot I am making...with pins for antenna at the moment)




For the shrinking spell, advanced after the book, travelling case and TV to the animated creature of a giant dragon! Well used to be giant now he is just under 2 inches tall and 1 inch wide, not counting his wing span...worked a charm...well a potion.






I embroidered on his nose and eyes and did extra crochet details of the contrast colours for spikes, wing outlines and belly.








It was fun crocheting tiny things...especially the dragon... Grin

So cute - that Welsh green (I assume?) is especially adorable!

Adorable dragon, two words that don't seem to go well together, but in your case, it does.
