Dinosaurs

I mentioned how much my son loves dinosaurs. He also loves pink. It has been his favorite color for a while now. I had out some pink suede cloth and he really wanted me to make him something out of it. When I asked him what he wanted me to make, he of course said, "a dinosaur!"

I actually made the Tyrannosaurus Rex a few months ago. I traced around a dinosaur figurine onto the back of the fabric, stitched around the traced line, then turned it inside out.


He wanted a Triceratops, too, but I resisted making it because I wasn't sure I could make it look like a Triceratops. I finally tried it a few days ago. I again just traced one of his dinosaurs. It worked OK.



Do you think it looks like a Triceratops? All the little horns were hard to get turned inside out. I shouldn't have made them quite so small.

T-Rex and Triceratops are good friends, now.
