|I made a dragon several years ago using a Simplicity Dragon pattern and was very unhappy with the results. The Smallworks pattern is NOT a disappointment...|
Fabric Dragon Sculpture by Melinda Small.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, and the photo is beautiful.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions for this pattern are very well written with good illustrations and informative tips. If you are a dollmaker, this pattern might not be hard, however, a dollmaker I am NOT. It was challenging, but the tips provided in the pattern were very helpful.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love everything about this pattern. It provided a full list of materials, and very detailed illustrations along with well written, step-by-step instructions. There is even a section about dragon lore.
Bali Cotton Batiks, and Quilter's cotton. Acrylic Paints and wire.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm going to make many more of these, it's such a rewarding project. If you're interested in doing a really nice dragon, get this pattern. She also has a pattern for a small wyvern (much simpler) and a standing dragon. I bought both of them and am planning on making and selling these little beauties. I've been searching for something like this for a long time...
This project was challenging and fun to make. If you like detail work and dragons, you'll enjoy this. If you want something quick, this is not for you. I feel like I just hatched a baby! :D
