Assembling the crochet dragon

First sew the feet at the base of your dragon (around rnd 5), making sure they are 5 stitches apart.

Then attach the arms either side of the dragons legs (the top of the arms should be between rnds 6&7).

To attach the wings, sew the tail end through to the other side of the wings. This will make the wings more even.

Once you have done that, place the wings on the back into a position you like (I put the wings between rnds 6&7). Make sure the light green if facing upwards. Sew into place.

Sew the tail to the back of the dragon, directly beneath the wings. Keep the tail at the same level as the feet (around rnd 5).

Before adding the face, sew the two ears on the head. Sew them between rnds 14 & 13 of the head. Keep them roughly 5-6 stitches apart.

Finally embroider a straight line between the two eyes, 3 stitches long. You can be as creative as you like when doing the mouth, you don’t just have to do a straight line!
