Dino-tastic @ Friday, May 13, 2011

 
Do you like my little Dinosaur creation?

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.

Look at his cute face...those big brown eyes!!


These are available to buy at The Bridge Gallery, both in-store and online.
