Absolutely, positively adorable!  One of the cutest little kid things I've seen!  Would be adorable for boys or girls, I think.  And it wouldn't take much to modify it to be a unicorn.  Make a mane where the spines are and add a little horn.  Oooh, for the dragon, you could make tiny little claws and sew them to the "top" of the cuff edge so they overlapped the hand just slightly.  Or, if it was made for a very young baby, extend the cuff into one of those fold-over to mitts type cuffs, and put claws on such that they showed off the end of the mitt when folded over.  (Geesh, I can picture it in my head, but have no idea if that even made sense.)

I think I saw Walmart had that very color of TLC Amore on clearance for very cheap.  I think that's similar to, if not the same as, Red Heart "Plush" yarn, which I worked with to make a fringe on a polar fleece blanket.  The end result was very fetching, but my biggest beef was the darned STATIC!  Granted, I live in a state that gets very humid during the summer and VERY dry during the winter, on top of the heater drying things out even further, so EVERYthing gets staticy here, but it was REALLY staticy, and it made it very tough to work with.

Lothruin,
Your ideas all sound really great!
I love the idea of little claws.
