>Inspired by Safety Eyes =P

Posted on June 18, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |


Well, the tester dragon that I so lovingly named Guinea is pretty much done, so now I can move on to one that I actually intend on selling. For my first dragon, I was actually inspired by a pair of Sleepy Eyes that I won from Suncatcher Craft Eyes in a Tweet contest last week.

These gorgeous eyes are hand painted by Michelle McLaughlin with non-toxic acrylic paint (Yay for non-toxic!! LOL) and they come in sizes from 4.5mm to 24mm. They really pick up the light beautifully! This is awesome for me because I was having trouble figuring out how to give the eyes more of a presence on the dragons’ faces. The Suncatchers definitely give them a little something special, and in the right size!!!! hehe…I’m super excited to be working with them!!
The sleepy eyes are just so adorable I decided to base my dragon’s theme around them- I’m going to make a sleepy, bedtime dragon! =D
I found some fun fabric, Wait…why does she need fabric for a amigurumi?? (It’s a secret! You’ll just have to wait and see 😉 and picked up a skein of Caron’s Simply Soft (my favorite for making amigurumi!) in Blueberry.

I’ve been so excited about this dragon that I’m already about a 1/3 done with it. I actually stayed up till 3am last night working on it and only went to sleep because I had to wake up bright and early to let the dogs out.

I can’t wait to show you the finished dragon!!! =D
