I finally completed this crocheted dragon!

I wanted to give this little dragon to my eldest son for his 9 year old birthday, but it's two days late now as I just managed to complete it. I was quite busy and tired with the Chinese New Year celebration in the previous few days. On his birthday, I only managed to make the head, then yesterday I completed the body and legs, and this morning I finally made the hands, and the little pink dragon was just born. It doesn't really look like a dragon anymore, as my son doesn't want to have the horns, wings and tail. He thinks it's much better to hold and cuddle. My little girl and baby boy like this pink dragon too, so I am thinking perhaps I should make my baby boy another dragon too. My next handwork project: crocheting a cat, as my baby boy "requested" for it. What's your next big or small project? Note: The green dragon is my little girl's, now the dragons have each other as friends or siblings.

This little dragon is really easy to make, especially when I leave out the wings and horns. It's only three parts, and it can actually be done in one day, but I just didn't get much time to do so in the day time while taking care of the kids. Once you get familiar with something, I think it won't be so difficult.
Thanks! I just learned how to crochet in these few years as I wanted to make some simple toys for my kids, and also teach them to knit and crochet too. So, I usually just crochet simple toys or dolls. I am also thinking to make something for my home or myself, instead of just toys for the kids. What do you usually crochet?
Thanks. I just learned how to crochet about 4 years ago, it took me awhile to learn as I was learning from the YouTube video tutorials. I finally got the idea of how to crochet because I was forced to learn how to crochet the hair cap when I was knitting a doll for my little girl. I didn't realize I have to crochet the hair cap, as the doll is actually done by knitting. It took me at least three times to finally get the hair cap done, though not perfectly, at least the doll was finally completed. What I wanted to say is, if you really want to learn, you surely can do that, as I am totally not an creative or artistic person and I never thought I could crochet or knit too. Decluttering and organizing my home is my current big project too. I have been working on it always, and hopefully I can finally get it done soon. I am packing the old clothes of my kids too, especially my youngest, as I can now give those baby clothes away, finally.
@rakski I think cross stitching requires greater patience, and I really didn't have the patience to do so. I have done two very small pieces of cross stitch when I was in high school, and those were like "forcing" myself to complete them. But I'll have to pick it up soon as I plan to teach my son cross stitching next year or year after next.
Do you mean you are staying in Korea now, and where are you from? Learning to read and speak a foreign language is really a big project. Hope you'll manage the new language and adapt to the new country very soon. I didn't know Korean alphabet is called Hanguel, thanks for sharing this with me. I don't know much about Korean language except a few words learned from watching Korean dramas.
