Dragon…Maned Bookwyrm

I bought this wonderful pattern of a small dragon, designed by Jennifer Carson. The only thing I changed was to add wings to him.

The pattern calls for needle felting which I had never done before. But I must say it was much easier than I thought it would be. However, I was very careful as the felting needles are extremely sharp.

I have various colors of roving, including a natural colored roving. I took part of it and dyed it with Turmeric, using a few spoonfuls of Turmeric, about 1/2 cup of vinegar and extremely hot water. I got a nice golden yellow on the roving.

This little guy is about 9 inches long, just big enough to use for a pincushion, or anything else one may want.

Finished another one and named them both. The dotted one is Professor Puddy Foot and this new one is Dr. Septimus Baker.

  1. You are sooooo talented. If you make a pie, do you thresh and grind the wheat first, too. I can’t believe you’re dipping things in curry slush. Prof. Puddy and Dr. Sept are just the right size to get into trouble. I especially like their button knee joints. So clever. Stop being so talented. You’re showing the rest of us up. (Uhhhh.. look…I made a wand by wrapping ribbon round a Popsicle stick).

  2. LOL! Yep, they are the right size.

    But there are lots of things I can’t do.. I just don’t do them so no one knows about them, LOL! I took a whole year of dance lessons. Never could get it right.
