In honor of my sister's birthday and her fascination for dinosaurs, I took it upon myself to create a DIY version especially for her. I just know that she'll love it for sure. Incredibly so, I managed to make it entirely from scratch!
Luckily, I had just enough fleece and felt fabric at hand. Also, it happens to be quite typical of me to have pastel toned fabric around and available for use.
And so, as with any project I first had to drafted out the pattern. For reference, I browsed various pattern from The Creative Book of Soft Toys as a general outline. Note that I scaled it slightly smaller; essentially, for her own practicality.
Then it was as simple as sewing each piece together like a puzzle. Since the defining and focal point is the head, itself, I spent the most time sewing each and every detail. Followed by constructing the body, or bag, and legs. To finish, sewing the pink felt strap and adding a button enclosure. Wunderbar!!
