RAYQUAZA


#384 RAYQUAZA
This is the next request by my Etsy customer.  I must say that this request did not surprise me since he had already ordered Groudon and Kyogre, which are the other legendary Pokemon from the Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.  Rayquaza is the game mascot for Emerald.  Even though he may look easy, he is not.  He is done in sections and then sewn together.  I used floral in making the Rayquaza for my Etsy customer.  This is something that I would not do if this is to be made for someone young.  This pattern includes the color lists for Rayquaza and Shiny Rayquaza.
