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.
