Well, I managed to finish the body on the bearded dragon.
The huge triangle is a piece of ultra suede. It is the right color, but I need to figure out ruffles...
I thought I could do bullion knots with Patena thread by Rainbow Galleries. Nope.
So I played on the edge of my fabric with some cotton thread and I love the look(bottom photo), but it didn't work in the Patena either(above photo). So I need to see if I have something that is the right color for the pads of the gecko. With my stash, it should be easy.
