Creativity Corner: Stuffed Dinosaur

I have not created NEARLY as much as I’ve wanted to this year. But, I managed to toss something together in November.

Thanks to a few random reasons, B and I are acquainted with former pro triathlete and all-around awesome person, Hillary Biscay. She and her husband, Maik, recently adopted a little girl, Madison Frankie. Since I knew we’d have a good shot at seeing her on our Arizona trip (blog coming soon), I wanted to make a little something for Madison. Since we’re Team Baby Dinosaur … clearly, I wanted to do a dinosaur.

I searched around online for some patterns and came across this one. It seemed quick and easy (and doable), so I pulled out some fabric and took a few hours to make a dino. Lo and behold, it turned out!

Holding it up (also for a sense of scale).

It’s pretty tiny, but it turned out pretty cute and I hope Madison likes it!
