Dragon  
Look what I made for T., [livejournal.com profile] angie_21_237's little girl. Not that she's old enough to care, but I'm really happy with the result and am working on one for Crocky and me.

I used baby-appropriate wool that is washable and dyed in dye that does not threaten anyone's health. Well, and this pattern.

 
 
Current Mood: okay
Current Location: Germany, Bremen

That is completely adorable! I'm so impressed with you folks who master the needle crafts.

Thanks! It's easier than it looks, give those instruction videos a go, they really help. I didn't know which end to put into the wool at little more than a year ago, either.

*squee* How adorable is that? <3 <3 <3 I think it is high time to learn how to crochet after a pattern, I SO need to try this out! This is such a sweet thing, I hope it is going to be much loved! :o)

Mark my words: this dragon will survive all of us. Baby will still own it when she's 85. Wonderful!!

Hope so! I'm not sure that it's sturdy enough, in spite of my efforts at creating unbreakable seams, kids are strong. :)

:) Thanks!

I used something that looks like cotton wool but is, if the label can be trusted, safe to have around small children and washable.

Thank you so much!

Hopefully she'l like him. At the moment she's too small to appreciate it, but I have high hopes for later. :)

The dragon is so wonderfull. - Thank you so much.
I already added it to T.'s favorite toys - that means I show it to her every day.
My mum - T.'s grandma - got a crush on the dragon too.

I'm glad to hear that she gets to look at him, though I suppose that she doesn't really care much yet, does she?
I sent your Mum the pattern, I can't wait to see her dragon! (Which is going to be incredibly cute, she can do anything with hook or needle if I remember correctly. :D)
