Life has been very hectic both at home and work so have spent what time I had beading this dragon which is for my granddaughter Haley's 19th birthday coming up soon. I had a lot of trouble with the wings, trying different methods. beaded fabric were too floppy, I thought the fast to fuse between silk too bulky and settled on organza/vlisefix sandwich with a thin wire sandwiched around the edge. Only a little beading on these so that they would sit up. I used plenty of Swarovski's on the chest and underbelly to satisfy Haley's love of bling.
