Charizard

Beau has talked about me making a Charizard for a long time now. I was always hesitant (he made me a little nervous), but finally gave in as usual.  He had some ups and downs along the way, his head was especially frustrating, but after a while he finally started coming together.

The touch I am most pleased with is his flame.  Beau and I have been trying to figure out how to make our Charmander’s flame (wolfdreamer) ever since I made it month’s ago.  It finally hit me while playing with some polyfil, that it looked like a flame when shaped.  Beau had some red and yellow paint and went at it! He mixed the paint into red, orange and yellow and at first tried to use a paint brush but eventually resorted to finger painting (Messy, but effective!).

We both hope you like the latest pattern.

If there are any mistakes with the pattern, feel free to leave a comment so I can fix it asap.

Assembly

Begin by attaching the head to the body.  Just sew the open part of the head around the open part of the body.  Attach snout to head.  Attach antlers to head.  After felting the eyes, it is time for the brow.  To do this Chain 7, sc in 2nd chain from hook and sc 5 more across (6). Attach to head. Look at pictures for placement.

Attach leg to foot and then attach leg to body. Attach claws to foot, one in the middle and one on each side.

Attach the start of Wing part 1 to the start of wing part two.  This creates a nice way for the wings to bend.  Row 8 of Wing Part 2 attaches to the body.  I weaved in a piece of wire to each wing so they would stick up.

Sew on belly spot.  Then attach underbelly to appropriate area.
Sew fingers to the arms and attach to body.
