Project: I has the Cyoot Sad Eyes
Pattern: Baby Snow Dragon (direct link here)
Yarn: King Cole Big Value Chunky
Additional materials: two 10mm black safety eyes
I originally intended to make this as a gift; there's a lovely lady at the Welsh Rugby Union who collates good luck emails to stick up on the walls of the training barn and changing rooms for the team before international rugby matches, so I was going to ask her nicely if she would pass on an actual physical good luck token for the team for the world cup in September. I planned to make the dragon wearing a Welsh rugby shirt and holding a daffodil. However, once I'd started sewing it together, it looked so cute that Jamie decided he wanted to keep it.
So this dragon is finished as is, and I will make another one for the team. I've got lots of time, as it's only June!
I followed the pattern pretty much exactly, except for the spines. The pattern says to make three spines the same size, but I did them in different sizes. The middle spine is the size from the pattern, then I did one with an extra round of increases, and one with the final round missing.
He is So Cute. Once I'd sewn the arms on, he looked like he was so sad because nobody was giving him a hug.
I think on the next one I do, I will omit the second round of the eyelids, because they obscure the black eyes a bit too much.
