Baby Dragon Pinkeep

I stitched this piece in the early 90's and never knew what to do with it. After years of being in storage, I pulled it out to find stains and hoop marks. I soaked it in denture tablets for a couple days and look how well it turned out!! All stains gone. Talk about relief! With it being clean, I set about making a pinkeep. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Meari I love it!
Question (you know me and my questions LOL) do you start/stop the ribbon on top and then add the bow?
How did you put the hanging part on there?
I made one this weekend and I'm just not "happy" with it. Did you push your pins in all the way? Or are your pin heads a bigger size?
Mind stopping by my blog and giving me some advice? I'll be FOREVER grateful :-)

That is SO cute! It reminds me of a patchwork dog my brother had as a baby. My great-grandmother made it for him and I had a crochet purse. We both say we wish we had kept them. This dino is definitely a keeper!
