Mmm... Mango by melkatsa Mmm... Mango by melkatsa
About 8 inches tall
Made with minky, fleece, felt, and magnets

----

A custom order for my cousin. Did you know that dragons are partial to mangos? This one is, anyway :)

I made some of my first pillows (like Pax) with minky but always found it somewhat difficult to work with. It's been a while, though, and this came out surprisingly well! Maybe I'm getting better at sewing hehe. Minky is definitely a very nice fabric - silky, soft, and actually easier to cut complicated shapes out of than microplush. Now if only it weren't so expensive...

This is awesome! I was told that mink is a whole lot less messy to cut if you use an X-acto knife to cut instead of scissors...

There are magnets in the mango and in the dragon's arms, so it's removable :)
