Our Dragon Puppet Sewing Pattern is the pattern of the month! In the Fun Facts blogs about the animals that we have patterns for, we list fun facts about the featured animal. Well, this is going to be just plain fun since dragons are mythological creatures. Anthropologists suggest that the ideas about dragons came about from ancient discoveries of dinosaur fossils and man’s evolutionary fear of snakes and dangerous reptiles. Like the komodo dragon.
