I felt like making a little dragon

needlefelt welsh dragon redThis weekend, I had a burning desire to make a needle felted dragon. With St David’s Day not far away, our season’s table could do with a red version.

He was fun to make. The shape formed quickly. The detail took time to decide on. I found myself picking him up, over the two days, just to add a little bit more. I knew the character that my dragon needed. Not scary or sci fi fantasy. More a gentle soul, who just happens to breathe fire and crunch on the ends of candlesticks. We’ve called him Norbet. Inspired by Hagrid’s dragon, from Harry Potter, although our Norbert is a far tamer chap to have around.

Hardly surprising that each of the children has offered to provide a home for my little dragon. Or else suggested the colour of their own future fire breathing beastie when I get round to making it. Hmm. We will see.

Bit late, but I’m linking up with Creative Mondays Blog Hop.
