Weekly Craft Update returns!

Yes, there are some crafts to post about! :) However, some of them, as usual for this time of year, I can't actually post about right now, because the recipients won't get them until Christmas. Then I can post the pix.

So in the meantime, here's some neat stuff made by Pixie!


iceraptoress gave Pixie a pack of fat quarters in blue and gold while she (IR) was visiting us. Pixie began making several things with it, most especially this critter.


Pixie based it on photos of completed soft-sculpture dragons from a pattern iceraptoress bought at the quilt festival. Pixie did not actually look at the patterns, just the pictures. She made a simplified dragon figure based on that. Here is the back and the wings.


Pixie does need some more work on neatness, but for a freehand design, I think it came out great! She used her own buttons and red scrap fabric for the eyes and mouth. Iceraptoress named it Kukla. :)


Iceraptoress got to name it because Pixie gave Kukla to her as a present to take home. :)

Great freehand design. Also great use of the fabrics she was given. The colors are really suited to a dragon.

The low neatness just adds to the excited feeling, like Pixie was so excited to make it neatness was sacrificed. The stitching on the mouth is very even and looks nice. The deep stitches give the look of teeth.

The design could be a good one to practice on the sewing machine, too.

Thank you! I think she really was excited to be working on it. He's very well-filled and quite stiff to hold, too.
