Dragon Device for Championship Cloak

This week I finished a small embroidered device for a friend. It will be sewn onto a Champions Cloak to signify service as Champion in heavy fighting. It was a fairly simple piece, except for the dragon. I had to embroider the little dragon by eye because I couldn't trace the design onto such a small area and the satin ribbon wouldn't take the chalk. I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

The design was marked out on felt with Frixion marker and the satin ribbon sewn down.

The dragon was embroidered in split stitch with crewel wool.

The shamrocks were embroidered with chain stitch in crewel to give texture.

Silver thread was couched along the edge of the satin and black crewel was used to outline the shamrocks. Another piece of felt was sewn to the back to cover the stitching.
