In 2014, Mary Mather and I continued our collaboration to create handwoven stuffed animals for her grandchildren/my nieces/nephews.  This year we created dragons using a pattern by Lois Boncer (the same designer as the camels from 2013).

For the fabric, I used 10/2 cotton in both the warp and the weft.  The warp was made from 2 shades of green and the weft is a blue.  I was able to achieve a bit of an iridescent effect from this combination.

The weaving draft came from the Strickler 8-shaft pattern book (page 103, pattern #370) - a plaited twill.  This draft was chosen to mimic scales.
