dragon cushion

This little fella was stitched for a swap. Usually I'd say dragons aren't my thing but I'll make an exception here because I think this cushion looks quite nice. I hadn't the foggiest how to draw a dragon, my first attempts looked more like mutant cattle so I ended up googling 'how to draw a dragon' and found a site with lots of tutorials here - is there anything you can't learn from the tinterwebs?

I had problems with the making up - I decided to do a sort of patchworky front - I have never done patchwork before and was winging it so it is wonky and not a the corners meet up properly, of course this contributes to it's handmade charm ;)

    1. The body is long and short- I think the wings might be stem stitch as a fill stitch but I can't quite remember, I'm guessing by looking at it!
