Frost Dragon Mods for Dragon Cross Body Bag Pattern

The Dragon Cross Body Bag is a wonderful project. It is by far one of my best selling patterns. Many people have made their own dragon purses (in many cool colors too!) and had great success with it.

As you might have guessed, my nerdy side took hold and after a certain hard-to-watch episode of Game of Thrones, I decided a Frost Dragon purse needed to be made.

So I made some adjustments to the original pattern, and viola! Frost Dragon Cross Body Bag!

These are modifications to the original pattern, not the whole pattern. If you already have your copy of the Dragon Cross Body Bag, you are good to go! Just change the face frills, horns, and nostrils as directed below. 

If you don’t have your copy of the Dragon Cross Body Bag, get it here for only $4.50. That’s two patterns for the price of one — the original Dragon and the Frost Dragon!

You can purchase the hardware here as well, via Etsy!

The original Dragon Cross Body Bag uses crocodile stitches in a triangle to texture the face. The Frost Dragon has four horns that angle away from his face, and the crocodile stitches from a ridge across his brow.

The Frost Dragon Mods also add slits for nostrils instead of large, round nostrils. This makes the nose seem more narrow.

    False advertising…it says it’s free, Ohhh…you get the modifications free once you buy the pattern…I’m sorry, that’s shady.
    “Dragon Cross Body Bag Free Crochet Pattern” is what it says… in the post…sneaky sneaky…

      The page is titled “Frost Dragon Mods for Dragon Cross Body Bag.” I’m sorry you felt misled, but that was never my intention. The Dragon Cross Body Bag came out a few years ago, and when Game of Thrones added a grey dragon with blue eyes, I modified the pattern. I wanted everyone who had the Dragon Cross Body Bag pattern to be able to do the same modifications, so I published them for free. Also, as a result of the popularity of Game of Thrones, I did not include it in the Premium Pattern because it could be viewed as a copyright violation, so I made it available for free.

    I am a bit confused! The pattern says its free in more than one place and yet when I click on the link it takes me to a Frost Dragon Mods and finally a link to the paid pattern. Could you clear that up, please?

What do you think?
