I love making Christmas gifts for people I love and this year I decided to make some stuffed animals for my four grandbabies. I like how these turned out, but this isn't the best drafted pattern in the world.
Its cute, but I don't feel like you can get a result that looks anything other than home made.
I made all three dinos. The brontosaurus is for grandson number 2. Elliot is 2 and he will hopefully love that the legs coordinate, but don't match the body. For the eyes, I used a plastic snap layered on top of a scrap of felt.
This T-rex is for Simon who's five. I thought he'd appreciate the scary face the most. I really love this fabric and wish I had more to cut all three from.
His spikes are from some Riley Blake fat quarters I had in my stash.
The Stegosaurus is for Leon. He is just about 2 months old.
I really thought about redoing the brontosaurus' legs but my daughter said Elliot will love it anyway. He's two, he probably will and won't say anything. I am probably being too critical.
My pet peeve about this pattern is in the drafting. I pride myself on cutting, stitching, and carefully sewing. No matter what I did, the bumps on the face and legs wouldn't disappear. Ugh.
I guess tho, that these aren't for me but for three precious little boys. I really hope they love them to pieces!
Thanks for reading!
