Dragon Baby Design

Well here he is! A quick sketch of the first amigurumi I'm going to design.
I love his huge cheeks and bobble toes :P I plan on making him an "all in one" ami with no sewing of parts together. I'm debating whether to crochet the horns or to use Polymer clay (an idea I got from Kathleen AKA slothmuffin of A Surprise Every Time).


  1. Hey, thanks for the link! Keep me updated about the polymer clay, if you buy and work with some. :) I was just making an Angry Bird polymer clay bead this afternoon, I should go glaze him right now...

    Anyway, I love the sketch for this dragon baby---the bobble toes and big tail and those spikes are all beyond adorable. He looks supremely cuddle-able as just a pencil sketch, and I can't wait to see him become an actually-crocheted reality. :D

  2. Oh my gosh, that is soooo cute! I can't wait to see it in crochet form! I'm jealous of your sketching I had to mostly give it up, because all my sketches look like something a three year old drew. My dolls are completely seamless too. I really like to design that way whenever possible.

    I think I'm going to do kind of the same thing with my dolls that you are doing with your dragons, as in giving them all names and a little profile. Polymer clay horns sound awesome. I'm curious to see how that would look. It's funny that you mentioned that I could try needle felting embellishments on my mermaid. I've wanted to learn for awhile now, and I even got the supplies last Christmas. I just haven't found the time to give it a try yet. My dolls are made with wool yarn too, so it would work great.

    I have one of my smaller dolls finished except for her face and hair, but I don't have the right color thread to make the hair, so I think I'm going to just start making another one until I can go to the store.
