My inner child
has wanted a dragon for quite some time. I tried once
, a few years ago, and failed :( That's why I called it reanimating
felt and stuffing. I kind of feel the first one never lived at all. I need to make a good post on that soon, the anima
, the living spirit thought into a toy, in the eyes of their creators and by the children who love them as well.
After several days of sewing the mad scientist can say: 'It's Alive!'I'm pretty happy with this guy. I even traced the pieces once I'd cut them out, so I'll be able to make him again. Sometimes I forget to do that and then have to work out the prototype not once but twice. I did this guy entirely handsewn. He's one of those larger 'art' toys I had been planning to make for a while and hadn't gotten myself started on.
He's kinda ferocious, watch out! ;)
An early morning dragon fight!
