Always speak politely to an enraged dragon - Steven Brust
Great of you to check out this funny and colourful dragon! I hope you like it as much as I do!
About the tagline, I had no inspiration for a tagline, so I just searched for expressions about dragons.. This one came from http://www.brainyquote.com. According to Wikipedia "Steven Karl Zoltán Brust is an American fantasy and science fiction author of Hungarian descent." Just so you know..
The friend I made Om Nom for (see my other projects if you like to see what he looks like), wanted this dragon, before she asked me for Om Nom. I really was looking forward to making something out of the book "Amigurumi and More" by Tessa van Riet-Ernst, especially because this is the book that tought me to crochet, starting with the flying amigurumi bollies you can see here: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/flying-bollies
But she changed her mind.. My boyfriend sacrificed himself and his car and told me that I could make one for him, the sweety that he is XD
Now this extremely evil dragon is guarding the car of my boyfriend by sitting in the back-window shelf in his car. With his evil eyes he is looking at every one who dares to look at my boyfriend´s car! ;)
So this pattern came from "Amigurumi and More" by Tessa van Riet-Ernst. This really was the first time I tried to make something this 'big' by using a pattern from a book. It looked really odd to me at times, but I just kept going and it turned out fine.
The weird thing about this pattern, this dragon had no wings... So it is actually a dino and not a dragon. So I had to give him some wings to fly with. I asked my boyfriend search for wings he thought would look great on his new car-mate.
He found these wings made by SoreLoser on Craftster
I attached them and now it is a real dragon! :D
I'm pretty pleased with how he turned out and so is my boyfriend.
