Cinderella with Dragon Egg

I'm always looking for new ideas for Easter Eggs. I never do candy anymore and when possible I'm trying to make more eggs to give away. This year I came across a dragon egg pattern I thought I'd try for a different kind of Easter Egg. You can find the free Pattern here. I've never used much metallic yarn and it was interesting to learn a new stitch and try a different type of yarn.

I'd picked up the Disney Princess Crochet Kitand been waiting for a good chance to start making some of them. Fillers for Easter Eggs seemed like a good choice.

There is a series of You Tube videos that help with the unique style of hair the designer creates for Cinderella. I still found the "wig" a little large for the head so I had to work around that when I sewed the hair to the head.

I like the themed patterns of these kits and I've bought several for the patterns. However, I wish they would sell the books without the kits. I would prefer to buy them that way. I was not terribly impressed with the yarn and I didn't need the hook or extra supplies. I actually found the eyes were too large. When I make the rest of the princesses I'll use smaller safety eyes. I used these because they came with the kit.
