Peridot the dragon...very green, she is. She's a large-sized dragon and also comes with a necklace for her, or a kid-sized bracelet for a human munchkin...just trying to get rid of some beads. :)

Hiya!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work in a post called August Birthstone Dragons by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I love this cutie, she looks so soft!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the good work!

Fancy dragon! My only gripe would be that her paws and feet seem a little simplistic, but then, she also has jewelry so I imagine you were trying to keep the detail to a certain level.

Her paws and feet are simplistic because...I ain't too great at sewing and this is the best I can do. :P If a dragon needs claws, I just sandwich felt triangles between the seams. I have experimented with more toes on each foot but you'd be amazed at the mess I've made (and how long it takes to make each foot, I'd be charging $120 for these dudes!). You want really simplistic paws, take a look at the mini dragons, who have paws like Care Bears. XD

The trouble all started because of the model I used to learn how to sew plushies - Beanie Babies. I dissected them to see how they're built, and followed their limb construction, adding toes where I could.

*lol* Admittedly, felt and polar fleece aren't the most malleable fabrics, so doing individual toes at that size would become difficult. All I can suggest is adding a bit of creative stitching to give the impression of individual toes.... and honestly, I'm sure that what most people care about is that they're cute, not overly expensive, and that they have really nice wings.
