This little dragon is a version of Kate Kuckro’s Norberta. Unlike Norberta, Dave has a stumpy tail and no wings. He is also blessed with the most daft expression ever to grace a dragon’s face, thanks to my hasty button-sewing.

It's not easy being green. And orange.

I intended to change him, but his owner took one look at him and it was love at first sight, googly eyes and all, and any changes I offered were refused. So, Dave has been allowed to carry on much as I made him, and is currently residing in Edinburgh where he shares living space with a Vietnamese toy pig named Bertie and a knitted diplodocus named Eric.

Due to recent cold weather across Britain, Dave now has a tiny purple scarf to keep him warm.
