Whole bunch of dragons heading out the door but I'm gonna CW the picture for spoilers because most of it is a mystery bundle. Each bundle is different but some of the dragons are in common, so don't peek if you wanted to buy one of these silverseams.com/shop/mystery-b and have it be 100% a surprise.

Ten new listings, all queued up and ready to drop at 1PM EST tomorrow (Saturday) at etsy.com/shop/silverseams Discount code is WELCOMEBACK10.

The two floral dragons are the only ones there won't be more of (I'm out of the floral fabric), and future dark lime dragons won't have a shamrock (unless someone specifically requests one, I guess). Except for the black rainbow mochi, I have more of the rest in progress already. So some quantities might go up a bit before the drop.

The pile on this is 1mm. Normal minky is 2-2.5mm.

(AFAIK the JoAnn fabric was also 1mm but it never explicitly said.)

Definitely ordering ALL THE COLORS of this stuff. 🌈

Fiiiinally got around to putting the lace wings on their respective dragons because, true confession, I had forgotten about them until I did the fuchsia dragon and was just thinking I should make some fuchsia lace wings too. Tried to remember if I had already sold the other lace wings and was like "... wait."

Gotta take proper pictures tomorrow and put them in the Etsy shop.

Two slightly different color selections going out to a couple of McCaffrey fans.

Gold, rust, midnight, mocha, emerald, and white baby,


Gold, rust, royal, brown, kelly, and white baby.

Me: *buys oversized light box*

Also me: *still has to shoot vertical to get all the dragons in the shot without getting the box sides in it*

I think I can fix that with one of the lenses in the set I got, soon's I remember where I put that set. Somewhere safe, I'm sure.

(Also some of these dragons are on sale; technically so is Love Dragon if you use the WELCOMEBACK10 coupon but that's a secret. etsy.com/shop/silverseams?sect )

Finally got the worktable lights plugged back in after rearranging the work room. Here's the latest iteration of the bejeweled beanie dragon. It has a slightly revised body shape, hoping to get a little more floppiness/posability out of the legs by making them thinner. It's only partially successful because the minky itself has some body at that size.

The embroidery also makes the tail kind of stiff - or maybe that's the dragonfly DNA.

If you're going to make a pink dragon, you need to really *commit* to the bit.

We had some snow today and then the leaf trucks came and vacuumed up the last of the fallen leaves so FINE, I'LL DO WINTER NOW.

I need to clean all the lint and whatnot off it (those frills just grab *everything*) and take better photographs but FOLKS, THE PURPLE CROWNTAIL DRAGON IS DONE.

So it's been bugging me since I made the snowflake dragons: it's not actually winter yet (despite that we had some snow already).

Four new dragons landing in the shop tomorrow, 11am EST. Trying a slightly different way to display the one-off dragons and their contrast under-wings.

Me while sewing this: this fabric is a nightmare I am never working with it again this was a big mistake

Me after it's done: okay I'm never making a dragon out of anything else ever again

Since I had the silver/sparkle dragon out for the scale picture with the Celestial Dragon's wing, I decided to see if I could get a better picture of her for the Etsy page. I like this one, other than I'm afraid it makes her look a lot bigger than she actually is.


Greetings to all the new people! I have been here awhile but don’t have an post so: most of my these days is made with my sewing robot, a RPi-connected embroidery machine that I do unconventional things with, like make plushies and fabric (with a bias). I post a lot (like, a LOT) about process and mistakes, including what I’m learning as I run my new Etsy shop. I live in South Jersey, just across the Delaware from , am a mom, and I have .

Am I... am I the only one that puts image descriptions on my pictures? YOU GUYS! You should always hover over (or click on, in most mobile) my pictures. Half the time I say more in the descriptions than I do in the main post!

(You can sometimes tell when I'm posting from the iPad without the BT keyboard because they're only *as* long as the main post...)
