Fleur 20cm Mohair 5-Way Jointed Dragon-Bear Pattern
Fleur — our friendly Dragon — is a delightful, likeable character, who enjoys the beauty and fragrance of flowers. With a brightly coloured 'coat', indicative of her cheerful personality, her endearing appeal is in stark contrast to the often-portrayed, typical fire-eating monsters.
A standing dragon, she is 20 cm tall and created from Steiff-Schulte Mohair and mini velvet, thus providing an interesting contrast in textures. Her limbs and head are jointed, she has glass eyes, an embroidered nose, mouth and claw detail.
The lace trim and mini buttons as well as instructions on how to make her fabric flowers with optional blanket-stitched edging and the frill on her spine are all included in her pattern.
