Finished Dinosaur (Finally!)

I did it!!! I finally finished making the "easy" dinosaur. FYI this was NOT easy!!! As you will have noticed from my previous post, the pieces were ridiculous! Putting it all together was even worse! But I did it! I have to admit that I feel kinda proud of myself for this one. :-)

The pattern directions say to glue his spots on (they're just made of felt) but I decided to sew them on instead. I remember having toys with felt pieces glued on and they felt hard and crunchy... not to mention the fact that the pieces were always falling off. (okay, okay, I probably picked them off) I also made his eyes out of felt. You're supposed to make them with yarn but I wasn't having much luck with that, so I cheated.

Next project.... the Monk's Travel Satchel.... or a super-cute little teddy.... I got the yarn for both today :-) I know I should really be finishing the sweater I've been making for my husband but I can do 2 projects at once (or 3) right?

Oh yeah, one more thing.... I think this dinosaur needs a name. You all know that if I named him myself it would be..... Dinosaur. But, after all that work I think he deserves a better name.... and that's where you come in. :-) I am accepting all suggestions and then maybe I will put my favorites up for a vote. So please, post your suggestions in the comments.... "Dinosaur" needs your help!!!

  • Oh dear god, his cuteness rivals that of Monkey! I won't suggest a name, as I see you've alrady chosen one. But boy, he was worth all the pieces and the angst. Great job.
