That is the title of a wonderfully illustrated
someone I admire a lot !
These last few days I SEWED a dragon
A dragon costume
for the youngest grandson !
(they're going to "Castle Fest" again)
Daughter had been working on the costume of the eldest
so I was the "aid group" for the youngest
(the middle one already had something he wants to wear)
We took the "knight" outfit I once made,
looked up a lot on Pinterest,
and daughter made a little sketch
to show how she liked it
Her idea for the head was to use a cap inside,
(the "Minions" cap that grandson loves to wear)
I also had the "old" knight's helmet pattern.
On the Saturday-market in Rotterdam I bought some green cotton
and some glittery fabric.
But I went again to buy some more green
(because the glitter wasn't the right colour ...)
but they didn't have that with them that day
so I bought something else :
really WILD soft tricot : with black and yellow drops on green background,
BUT the backside was quite nice !!!
Ears, part of the mouth, points for the head and the back ...
(thick fiberfill : stash from the old "quilting-days")
in fact making a new "cap", the sturdy bit will be the mouth
(it's got plastic inside !)
(you can see the "wild" inside here ...)
points for the back ..... and my clever tool to turn it !
(got the tool from a friend : these surgical pliers are thrown away !!!
because buying new is cheaper than sterilize them .... ???)
half with the machine, half by hand.
but still wings to make
But then daughter arrived
to tell they're not going to the party tomorrow ...
but on Sunday !
Ahhhhh ... BIG time for a show !!!
SOME FIERCE DRAGON THIS IS !!!
(the pants are at home : daughter made them,
just like his favorite sweatpants !)
(LOL he was a lot louder, after this first picture was taken ;-) ...!)
They went home (with the head)
and I finished the wings and sewed them on the back of the shirt.
