Large Dragons 2 by Pickleweasel360 Large Dragons 2 by Pickleweasel360
I put Haku in here to show just how big these guys are. Being four foot long you don't really get the sence of how big they are unless compared with something else. Although they are on the hood of my truck, they still look small to me haha. That's my original Haku dragon pictured with them. They are all made from the same pattern, which is still available for sell. Haku is a little beat up June's niece likes to get him down and play with him when she comes over.

If you would like to buy the pattern for the dragons, I've listed it here: www.etsy.com/listing/115904240…

Well selling the finished items and patterns are the only source of income I have, so I can't just give them out. However, here is another artist with a Haku pattern that is listed in the description for free. Hope that helps. aphid777.deviantart.com/art/Sm…

Hmm, I wonder why you can't find any. Are there any hardware stores nearby? The kind I got is what they use for fencing wire. If came in a large spool but you should probably be able to get it in a smaller version. I'm glad its coming along nicely, hopefully the wire will be the only bump in the road :3

found out that 16mm wire is American size and here in the uk it is a size 2.5mm if I have got it right

so cool! How do you make the limbs poseable? I would love to do that with some of my projects.

Pickleweasel360 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thank you! They have an aluminum wire inside of them. One running from the head to tail, and one running across from foot to foot. It makes all my pieces posable! It really adds another element to the piece. Plus its a lot of fun posing them :)

what thickness? I have some wire, and I tried it once but the wire was too thin to make a difference. Also how do you make sure it doesn't poke through?

Pickleweasel360 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
These have 16mm aluminum wire in them. On smaller things I use 18mm. I usually curl the tips so it wont poke out. If not I clip the edge flat so if it does poke out it wont hurt. For small things I don't curl it in case it breaks, so you can pull it out and fix it.

I thought about making a shorter version of Haku in Mushu colors one time lol He's just too cute. I kind of want to do a mini version of Pink Panther. I looked for yarn today but they didn't have the right color.

if you ever do make a Mushu, be sure to post pictures! haha.
I hate it when stores don't carry the right colour of yarn... or when it looks different in the store than when you take it home. xD ahhh... the troubles of crafting.

Not usually. Typically you can get 2 - 3 animals out of a roll or yarn if they are small. It depends on the size of the pattern and the type of yarn you use. Haku (the white dragon) used about half a roll of white and only a small bit of blue and brown. The stuffing is from a hypo allergenic pillow. The little eyes can be between 1- 2.50 a pack. It may seem like your spending a lot at first, but once you get the supplies you wont have to get a lot of things after that. Yarn being the most frequent thing you will buy.

I've got a shoe organizer full of yarn, but it seems like everyone always wants a color I dont have haha. Yarn can be between 3.50 - 8 depending on what kind and what its made of. I usually get Red Heart Super Saver yarn from Walmart. Its pretty cheap and the thickness is consistent among all the colors. The larger dragons though, used a lot of yarn and it was really thick. About 4 rolls of yarn each, not including the hair. It was a special brand too so it was more expensive.

If you are first starting out, stick with thinner yarns like Red Heart Super Saver. Also, here is a link for a good website if you want some patterns to practice with. I looked through it a lot when I first started. Plus they're are a ton of free patterns on their! I only know how to crochet, but if you want to try knitting they have knitting ones too. Hope this helps! If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Thank you! :3 I like the curvyness to the antlers on them. The black antlers look a bit off, I think its the pipe cleaners though. They are textured and feel kind of scruffy.

Did you lengthen them or was that just because of the yarn? I know my Haku's body isn't complete, but it's nearly as longer than my leg! Super excited about that! Also, your pattern is amazingly simple! I love it!
