100 Dragon Goal update-

So far this year I have sold 51 dragons and have 2 still listed on Etsy…Wow, I’ve made 53 dragons this year!

I have 4 almost finished Ryder dragons, and 1 moogan- which when finished will up the count to 58.  The next batches are all smaller dragons that add up to 42, if I get them all finished I will make 100 by the End of December!

I’ll spend this week cutting them all out!

I am coming to the realization that I may not get all the dragons finished in time for the holidays this year, but fingers crossed!

I still have one batch to go ….but I have so many non dragon projects on hold they may need to take precedence.

I choose special red Iris eyes for him, a black fox fur mane, a shell nose horn and black texture paint for his face nubs.

Dragons to package up

August batch is finished, most have sold previously , the 5 dragons I just finished have all sold and now I will be getting them ready for their journeys.  lugging 5 boxes at once can be difficult so I will be making a couple of trips.

Next week I’ll be getting my sewing room in a more organized state, and move back into it (I took over the living room for this batch to be closer to my computer).

I am coming to the realization that I may not get 100 dragons finished this year, but fingers crossed!   So far I’m up to 53, which is more than last years 40 dragons and I still have one batch to go….but I have so many non dragon projects on hold they may need to take precedence.

Sibyl is a very beautiful Guardian Dragon

I love her Peacock patterned fabric,  Sibyls were considered Oracles in Ancient Greece.

Dragon Shipping

Mostly to save time I am succumbing to Etsy’s Lures, and I will be letting them calculate the shipping, print the labels and pre-paid shipping.They have contracted for a bulk rate which should save on shipping.

Then it will be dropping packages off once a week at the Post Office (in theory), I can arrange  pick up too.

For International Shipping, using Priority Mail International shipping, insured with tracking…is the only way I will ship internationally.  I tend to worry and obsess about dragons getting lost in the mail.

It will probably mean fewer sales, but it will be a lot less stressful for me as the seller and for the buyers.

 

Fyre – Copper Royal Dragon

Today I will be finishing Fyre, a Royal Dragon, with shell claws and horns.      Fyre is only his working name.20160817_101715

20160817_211911

horns are on, I will assemble and finish him in the morning.

I love the way the body fabric sculpts, and the matching fabric with metallic copper veining used for the under wings is amazing.

Ready for the face horns to be tied, glued and pinned in place-

Orchid – Ryder Dragon

20160817_124309Finishing up the Red and Lavender tie dye dragon today, all I have left to do is assembling, button covers, name tag, adding her lavender ostrich mane.  It was hard to come up with a name, but I finally choose Orchid for her.
