Rawr is dinosaur for ‘I love you’

Guess what I made!?!?!?!

Yeah. It’s a dinosaur! 😀

This evening I was walking outside and my ears got cold. So I’ve decided to remedy that. I found a tutorial that had a big person sized pattern, rather than the kids one I linked to before, and decided to use that instead. The original is freaking adorable.

I haven’t had a chance to add the eyes and teeth yet, but I’ll be making a trip to acquire the felt over the weekend. I’m fairly certain that will be the only thing possible to make this hat even more adorable and awesome.

I’m not sure if I’m 100% happy with how my spikes turned out, so if I make another one of these, I may try making them a little smaller to see how that looks.

All in all, I’m very happy with the dinosaur that now keeps my ears warm 🙂


Back to life.

I’ve decided to brush the cobwebs off my blog and update a few things. Yay updates! School has been really busy this semester and I haven’t had time to sew a thing. However, my ever growing box of fabric has been calling my name for a while, and I’ve decided to take mercy on it. The fabric was grateful to see the light of day again.

First, I’ve been working on a wonderfully warm fleece dress for winter. The main part is pretty much done, but I’ve decided to step up my game from here on out and add some embroidery. It should turn out looking pretty good, once I practice a little more….

It is essentially a modified tunic, with a few pieces combined to try and cut down on the overall bulk of the seams. I also put a little more time into the neckhole on this one and I am much, MUCH more pleased with it than any previous attempts.

Also, I found this today and it immediately jumped to the top of my to-do list. After all, who wouldn’t want a dinosaur hat!?

I’m going to try and update this some more in the upcoming days/weeks as I finish more projects, but unfortunately I can’t make promises.
