A Fun Little Bird?


Part Duck...


Part Dragon...


And very Silly!

This was made for the "Salad Bar" Challenge Summer 2008, on the Silly String group, on Ravelry. Although I was not a full participant, (getting my list from another member of the group as part of a swap) I thought this looked like great fun. And it really was fun to make up this creature.

The list given to me by my son:

Bird type,
Head: fangs, beak, pointy ears, open mouth, tusks, visible tongue,
body: wings, scales, dragon tail
Extremities: legs bend backwards, pincers, flippers for feet
Extras: Glasses that serve as the eyes, shoes, and a “Mario” hat.

I think he was being purposely difficult.

I Just went with the list and whatever inspiration occurred along the way. I worked on it until inspiration stopped and the project seemed to be saying "I am done." I did not work in the tusks or scales. My son says the variegated legs look like scales.
