Dragon’s Flame Designs™

Dragon’s Flame Designs™ has covered several different things since I came up with the name, including website design, hand-made cards and other crafts. This blog is devoted to sewing, with a few knitting and crochet projects lurking here and there. Just mind the threads on the floor, and don’t trip over the balls of yarn!


I started sewing in 2014, and my first machine-sewn project looked remarkably respectable! I started concentrating on bags and plushies, as the sizing didn’t need to be perfect for those, and I’ve ever written a couple of tutorials to go with my free patterns. In 2017 I decided to be brave and put more effort into making clothing, which has been surprisingly successful!

This site does include some affiliate links – those are marked with a *. An affiliate link simply means that I get a small payment if you click through that link and make a purchase. It doesn’t cost you any extra, and simply helps fund my next purchase of fabric!


My Gran taught me how to knit many years ago, but it wasn’t until 2012 that I picked up the needles and started knitting again. My ultimate favourite items to knit have to be teddy bears…. although I am notorious for starting a project and not finishing it!

Most recently, I’ve put down the knitting needles, and started sewing more instead – it takes less time (and patience), and I’m finding it easier to get a decent result at the end.

But where did the Lush reviews go?

In 2015, I extended this Dragon’s Flame Designs™ blog to also cover reviews of Lush products, seeing as I’ve tried so many of them now! 🙂 However, my Lush reviews didn’t really fit in with sewing, so they can now be found on at Dragon does Lush.
