ASSEMBLY

Sew on dragon wings, leaving a space in between. Next, crochet on the spine. Finally, sew on all of the feet.

NOTES:
*I just stuck my animal eyes (without the backings) in, because I’m not giving it to a child. I recommend embroidering on the eyes if giving the dragon to a small child. Otherwise, stick `em in!

*If you think that the tail is too short, go ahead and make it longer! Decorate this baby any way you like!
