Guessing Game: The Reveal

Here is the finished crochet project that I have been working on for my grand daughter, Eskarina.

Meet JJ., The Fire Dragon, 
but my version is Ms. Dragoness!

The original dragon was in shades of red, orange, yellow, black and white.  
Perfect for a fire dragon.
Ms. Dragoness is more greens, hot pink, purple/burgandy and white.
Sort of a high heal dragon - without the heels!
(But I did include pink nail polish.)
I made one other change.  
The original had nostrils.
  I made them but then opted to omit them.
The face looked friendlier without them.
Ms. Dragoness will have to be a 'mouth-breather.'


This was a project!  
No ... not quite the right emphasis!
This was a PRO - JECT!!!
My hands start to ache just looking at it!  
But, I'll do it again - just not this month!

Here is Ms. Dragoness with a little bow grouped with other birthday presents for Ms. Esk!
Tomorrow Ms. Dragoness goes to her new forever home and her new mistress!
Hoping our little birthday girl is not frightened by this gift made with love in every stitch.

That's all folks.
The end 
(so to speak.)

Leigh said...

That is SO cute! I never would have guessed. Well done.

Michelle said...

How could Esk be afraid of that; it's so cute! I wish you had included something for scale; I can't tell how big it is.

Lynne said...

WOW . . .
What a talent you are, I can’t even imagine the time, the figuring out, the creating!
I too thought it might be a dinosaur or a creepy crawly of some sort.
I hope you can get some pictures of her with her “creature!”
