Crocheting is such a fun time to spend your day, especially while staying home all day long. If you love to crochet, you will want to try these crochet miniature dragons! They are so cute you will want to make them all!
These dragons are so cute, mainly because there are so many tiny details to make up these miniature dragons. You can see their eyes, their little wings, and their cute little face. What makes them so adorable to me is their little head tilt, it gets me every time. It’s a mini version of this life sized crochet dragon.
