I really think these dinosaurs are the cutest things that I have ever made, I did love the dolls I made last year but think these are just so sweet. They are for my great niece for Christmas, she will be 3 in Feb and loves dinosaurs.
The pattern for most of them comes from a fab site, MoochiOochi Crafts, with so many free patterns for felt toys and I will definitely come back to this site. I think the stegosaurus might just be my favourite one.
I found it through a You Tube tutorial and it is very helpful on how to put the dinosaurs together though I used running stitch then stitched it again to close the gaps rather than blanket stitch as I was not sure how neat I could make it. I just adapted the adult brontosaurus to make the babies.
I was tempted by some gorgeous camping themed fabric the other night, I cannot even remember where I was when I saw this but it is from the Riley Blake ‘I’d rather be glamping range’.
I know I will not be able to use this for about 3 years but thought that I would rather get it now to add to stash and then when I hopefully get my little camper van it can be turned into a cushion. It is so cute! I got it from Sew Scrumptious Fabrics with low postage and very fast delivery.
Well I am off to Spain tomorrow, I haven’t seen Mum for 6 months so am really looking forward to spending lots of time with her and lots and lots of time doing not much in the warm. I am taking some cross stitch with me to make start on the ornaments for next year and will also be working on some more knitted animals for various friends.
Take care, have a very happy Christmas if you are celebrating, thanks for visiting and see you in a few weeks!
