Gear Up For The Series Finale Of Game Of Thrones With These Crochet Dragon Scale Slippers
"Winter is coming..."
Okay, winter is actually nearly over - but these are just too cool not to wear all year around.
If you happen to be both a crafty sort of person and someone who, for whatever reason, is a big fan of dragons - then these crochet dragon scale slippers might just be the thing for you. They're adorable, they're colourful and they just scream comfort.
Plus there are plenty of dragon-centric shows out there right now and if you happen to be a fan of one of them then these crochet dragon scale slippers would be a fitting addition to your household.
I have one particular show in mind - Game of Thrones. The wildly popular show is set to end following the eighth season - which starts April 14, 2019, on HBO - so fans of the fantasy drama will want to gear up for the season finale by getting their hands on all kinds of GoT-themed merch. Or, you know, totally unaffiliated crochet dragon scale slippers.
These impressive dragon scale slippers were created by Lianka Azulay and are available to purchase from Bonita Patterns on Etsy. The Brazilian-born crafter first began experimenting with crochet at the tender age of seven and has been hooked ever since.
She has done a lot of research into the art of crochet and her first collection of designs, "Crocodile Stitch Fashions", was published by Annie's Attic and eventually became the #1 best-seller in their catalog.
On her brand's YouTube page, the designer explains that Bonita Patterns is a "is a team of independent designers providing unique and fashion-forward crocheting and knitting patterns."
"We will be providing helpful how-to video tutorials to help you learn to crochet & knit. We will also offer special online classes to tackle unique patterns. Our goal is to spread the love and joy of fiber arts and build a happy and supportive community we can all enjoy."
As it turns out, it's not just dragon scale slippers that are a thing - you can get your hands on (or into) a pair of dragon scale gloves.
Entrepreneur Kristine also has her very own Etsy brand, called Mareshop, where she sells these gorgeous dragon scale gloves.
But again, if you'd much rather have a go at making the gloves or the slippers yourself, there are plenty of video tutorials to help you with "crocodile stitch" needed to create the scales.
