2 Forest Moths, with Oak Wings
1 Striped Ryder
I’m also giving the 2019 dragons not purchased a make over, let’s see if they find homes soon.
I’m already working on more dragons for February-March
I also found some new fabrics, that I love, and will make many beautiful dragons!
I hope Everyone had Happy Holidays, and will have a safe New year, full of Hope, Joy and Dragons!
I’ve done my yearly contemplation about Dragontry. I’ve decided To give it my all, for another year!
This year I’m going back to making mostly larger dragons, and Gryphons. I know with them taking more time, there will be fewer dragons finished, but the ones I hatch will be amazing.
Looking forward to a wonderful year!
After some realization of how many dragons I can hatch in 5-6 weeks, my new Holiday To hatch list has been adjusted down to 6, the rest will be hatched after the Holidays.
2 – white, snow pixies (1 is reserved)
2 – Pink candy-cane Pixies
2 – woodland moths
I’m really pleased with these choices, and think they will be amazing.
I’ll be closing the Etsy shop down in mid December, don’t worry I’ll make sure to get any adopted dragons to their new homes in time for Christmas.
As for 2020, after I open the Etsy shop in February, I want to work mostly on larger dragons, it’s been awhile since I’ve hatched any Royal, Sea, Asian, or Ryder dragons.
Darklings are a new type of dragons I have created, I really like the way they have turned out. I have 4 finished so far and should be able to finish more very soon. They have larger wings, bat ears, long finger and toes, and most have red eyes.

How to wear a Pixie Dragon
Pixie Dragons can ride on your shoulder.
I use a ball and socket armature for the Pixies. Moving the legs to a back position allows the Pixie to belly-rest on the shoulder with their tails positioned around the neck and up to the front for balance. You can position the arms and legs; just don’t spin them around in one direction, since that would tighten the internal thread to the point of breakage.
The wire in a dragon should bend pretty well, you just don’t want to bend it back and forth repeatedly, as for the armature the manufacturers say it can bend up to 28 degrees. I bent the armature as much as I could before it would snap apart, and took the pic below. It is very sturdy and you will feel resistance when it has reached the bending limit.
How to wear a Dragontry Shoulder dragon…

A Dragontry Shoulder-dragon can sit upon your shoulder while you go about your adventures.
The Dragon’s feet should be slightly cupped to fit the width of your shoulder, drape the tail down your back and up and over to your opposite shoulder for balance.
I thought I’d post some of the pictures my Lovely, and amazing dragon owners have shared to Dragontry. Thank you all for the wonderful pictures.
I am still on track to have 13 dragons finished before October first! Then on to cutting out the Holiday dragons. I just finished all the top-stitching and sewing the heads…so many parts! There will definitely be fewer dragons for the Holidays.
Update- I spent the weekend cutting out 25 dragons for Halloween. Honestly I don’t think I’ll get that many sewn/ hatched in September, but I will try and finish as many as possible. I will list any or all on October 1st. In October I will start the Holiday and Fall dragons.
Halloween Nipper Dragons from long, long time ago… Yes, I made them little hats!
PS: I have redone the Nipper Pattern, and will start cutting them out for 2020. I gave them bigger dragon wings, changed the arms, increased the tail length, and plan on using ball and socket armature.
