Dexter! A New Dragon Softie Pattern!

Dexter Dragon - a pattern from Shiny Happy World

Meet Dexter Dragon!

He’s a young dragon – very pudgy and cute and huggable. 🙂

He can’t fly yet, but he’s very proud of his wings!

They stand out nicely – but they’re still soft so they don’t interfere with hugs and snuggles.

This is a new fabric – Cuddle Minky instead of Cuddle Fleece. I’d love to hear what you all think of it! It’s one-sided, so a lot thinner than the cuddle fleece and (I think) a little easier to work with.

I tried this new fabric for three reasons. One – it comes in WAY MORE COLORS than Cuddle Fleece. Two – it’s even softer than Cuddle Fleece. Three – it has contrasting textures available – like this amazing chevron I used for Dexter’s underbelly.

He also looks super cute made in polar fleece with quilting cotton for his frills and wings. 🙂
