Isn't he adorable? It's kind of like a topsy-turvy doll. I had one when i was younger. Its was little red riding hood/wolf/grandma all in one. I wish I still had it.
Not the best photos but you get the idea. He was not hard to make but I did make a huge mistake. I cut all his pieces out before I read the instructions. I was supposed to ADD 1/4" seam to all his pieces. Why oh why weren't they already on the patterns pieces? Why add?? So he is smaller than he should be therefore making him a little funky. By this I mean you can't stuff the one up inside the other to far because the neck area is too small. So their heads are deflated. When George is stuffed with the dragon the dragon acts as stuffing but since I can't get the dragon up farther than the neck..
Just wanted to show the other end. He was not fun to turn right sides out (you pull the dragon through George's head for the initial turn then sew up the head). All I kept thinking was, "I'm gonna have to give him an episiotomy!". I could not get that dragon out of his head. So I had to cut his hole bigger. oops. Gross. Some advice: don't type in to google "episiotomy" to check spelling. The pictures that came up...oh man...brought back memories.
The pattern is from here. If I was to do it again and I actually have another almost done for a relative with a little boy, I would do it bigger!
Whoever ordered/asked for/begged for/complained for this heat is not my friend. I'm MISERABLE. I'm dyeeeiiiinnng! And the worst part? It was only 79 or so yesterday. Whaaat? It truly felt like 90-100. I think (because it's been so long since I've been home) that my home town of San Diego averages about 75 and it's not hot like this!! When it gets to 90-100 then it's hot there.
