These were the words spoken by my niece as a gave her the much requested “fat dragon” that I “nibbled” for her.
So much for my belief that if I put a face on it, she will believe me because I’m Aunt Allie.
Aunt Allie is obviously a fibber.
But she absolutely loved her fat
dragon errrr dinosaur. And that’s what it’s all about.
I made a few changes to the finishing of the pattern. I made on long brown scale for the middle of the tail and then two smaller green sets of scales to secure to the sides. Then I added two brown eyes out of yarn by cross-crossing the yarn until I was happy with it. I cut out two small nostrils with black felt and sewed those down with black thread. Instead of a mouth, I opted for a tiny plume of yellow felt fire.
