I completed Jack's request for a dinosaur last Monday just a few minutes before my husband came back from picking him up from school.... I literally was sewing the last few stitches and making the final knot.
So right when Jack got through the door I gave him the dinosaur and I can tell you that seeing the look on his face and hearing him squealing with joy made me forget how much my fingers were hurting :) He inspected it and remarked it had a long neck and a bump on its head, as it should, and told me he loved it while hugging it real hard.
He's been playing and sleeping with it since and even brought it to school the other day to show his teacher.
In case I had forgotten, that really reminded me why I do what I do, to make people smile and giggle :)
Enough bragging though and let me show what it looks like and the few other "making of" pics I have:
So here he is, all 24 inches long that he is.... and with a friend too!
But, as promised, here are some more making of pictures:
I'm still thinking of making a hat and a tie for him... he could be a dino detective... I have a tendency to want to turn all plush into detectives these days!
The mouth was tough to make and it took quite a bit of stuffing to fill that puppy up. I'm happy with the results and I hope I won't have to make a triceratops next ;)
If you have a challenge for me you can always convo me on Etsy and I'll see what I can do for you!
