I’m not the biggest fan of the fantasy genre, but I’ve always been enamored by dragons since I was a kid, with my favorites being Mushu from Mulan, Gargoyles (I know they don’t quite count, but still!), and American Dragon: Jake Long. And now that we’re on the subject, check out these cute picks and have your dragon any way you want it – whether it’s a pin, sticker, or otherwise embroidered, crocheted, or felted!

PillsAgainstBoredom (UKR) has a wide selection of beautiful felted dragon babies and hatchlings, available as full-sized figurines or craft patterns, the latter of which is the better way to support the shop at this time as they are based in Ukraine.
