Woolly Dragon Stocking

As well as papercrafting, one of my other addictions is crochet, and as soon as I saw this little woolly dragon I knew I'd love to colour him up.  Popped onto a supersized gifttag he's the perfect companion for one of my recent crochet projects: a Christmas Stocking.  The photo's a bit dark, but the stocking is a deep purple with cream accents, and I've popped some purple yarn into the dragon's stash too!

Here's a close up of the gift-tag, which is about 8 inches tall:

The stocking crochet pattern is an easy tutorial from Alexis Middleton at Persialou (YouTube Tutorial or Written Pattern) and has a lovely shell stitch texture. The size is great, mine is about 20 inches in length, so it's great for actually presenting gifts inside.
