My Secret Santa partner loves mythical animals and handcrafted items, so I got to make her gift!
I call this a kimono dragon because her body is crafted from an old rayon kimono. I actually did the body for the ornament swap this year, but since it is more than a foot long, I realized it was too big and made a smaller version. That saved time for this project!
the crest down her back is multicolored hairy yarn
her wings and tongue are animal print silk
She has a patch of colorful sequins on her belly
All from stash, including the wire armature.
Dang, this is cool! The design (and critter) fits the scrappy style and the print choices SO WELL!
What an awesome dragon! You have a lucky swap partner.
Oh, whoa, wow! Wish I could look all over this close up! Super cool. What are the teeth?
Of course, they are 3D printed!
This is amazing! What an awesome gift! Someone was clearly on the nice list this year!
Oh, wow! She is spectacular! Such a stylish beast. I’m a sucker for sequins, and all of those fabrics are very dragony.
Awesome stash use and quite a fun project! Lovely job!
Wow, beautiful and magical! The colrs and whimsy are perfect
I’ve never seen anything like this! I love the design and your textile choices!
We did our exchange today. She loved the dragon, said it reminded her of the movie Yellow Submarine.
She also got the dragon dome.
