Sundreams and Myths -- Soft Sculpture Catalog

-- Please be patient -- PICTURES MAY TAKE A COUPLE MINUTES TO LOAD

Welcome to Cheryl's page of Soft Sculpture
Plush stuffed animals - featuring poseable & wearable shoulder dragons / dragonets
and a veritable menagerie of other mythological / fantasy creatures.

These are not action figures, but three-dimensional art pieces -please treat with due care.

All pieces are individually crafted -not mass-produced. That which was not sewn by hand, was sewn by foot.
[A large part of the sewing is done with a foot-powered treadle sewing maching.]
Each piece is therefore unique and one of a kind.
Except as noted, these pieces are not recommended for small children.
    -most have wire armatures and glued jewel eyes that can create a choking or puncture hazard.

Note: Shipping and Handling must be added to the prices shown.
         -see bottom of page for shipping and handling costs.

| DRAGONS | WYVERN | OTHER | ANTHRO | SPECIALS |
Three styles: SHOULDER DRAGON [3 SIZES], FAIRY DRAGON, and ORIENTAL DRAGON.

Shoulder Dragons - inspired by the Fire-lizards of Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern
shoulder dragons
Shoulder Dragons are available in three sizes: hatchling, adult, and giant.

One of the first makers of shoulder dragons, when Cheryl read Dragonriders of Pern, she wanted a fire-lizard of her own, and unable to find any, she made one. At ren-faires and conventions she was showered with accolades, asked where she got her little friend, and asked if she would make another.
Thus was born her first line of soft sculpture - now with 30-plus years of expertise and satisfied owners.

Four legs plus wings, with varied degrees of poseablity. Signed and numbered (except the child-safe).
These dragons can easily perch on your shoulder, wrist, or just sit in your lap, shelf, or wherever.
Each comes with a care-and-feeding scroll - a copy of the individual's serialization (certificate, if you will).
