I was asked by my Gallery Director to sew together one of the 'Make Your Own' kits we stock, to give customers a better idea of what the finished product would be like. A great idea! Of course I jumped at the chance. Anything crafty is always fun.
We stock a choice of three kits, a Bunny, Kitten and the Dinosaur. Also in three colours, Blue, Orange and the Green. Well, for some reason I have a thing about dragon looking creatures...so I chose the Dinosaur. Green is my favourite colour, so really, it was an easy choice.
It was a simple, cut and sew pattern. Made from four different sections. I simply followed the instructions, and sewed together using a straight stitch.
The end product was a little rough around the edges, but so cute! Admittedly the instructions told me to trim the edges with pinking shears, or right angle cuts - but I was too eager to see the finished result. So, my 'Dino' has perhaps more angular features than he should, making him look more like the loch Ness Monster.
I love the green retro looking print though!
I decided to slightly customise 'Dino', simply by adding a yellow bow, and a gold tone button on his tail. Makes him more unique, plus shows people what you can do, should you wish.
