Needle Felted Dragon – a Gift of Love and Protection
Caprice Willert Needle Felted This Gorgeous Purple Dragon as a Token of LOVE.
“I made this dragon for my sister Tracey as a going away gift. She was moving out-of-state
and I wanted her to have something to watch over her.
She loves dragons and the colors purple and pink.
This was my first large armature. He is wired from head to toe,
including the wings. He’s 20″ long x 12″ tall. I used some pre-felt to start
the structure of the wings and then added the colors on top. I used a toothpick to wrap
the wool and make the various horns. I used Wild Berry and Berry Picken’
for the body colors. I wanted the colors to have variegation in the wool.
I used those bits of colors to add additional hues. The eyes are glass.
I used them because they were glittery and the pupils were slits.
I really had fun making it and she loved it, which was what counted.”
