Dinosaur Evolution

When I get an idea in my head I think two things simultaneously.

1) I can do this in ten minutes and it will look AWESOME!

and

2) Kerry. You idiot. You know you can’t ace this first try.

So when I decided to make a dinosaur, I was under the impression that I would draw up a pattern real quick and have an super cute dino in about ten minutes. I think you know where this is going.

Attempt 1: I sewed the whole thing up and forgot to leave an opening to turn it right side in. Trash.

Attempt 2: Looks likes a naked cyndaquil. Trash.

Attempt 3: I couldn’t figure out how to close it, it had a giant hole in the chin, and it looked terrible. Trash.

Attempt 4: I reworked the pattern so it could hold its arms open and stand up unassisted. But it was still messy, had a lazy eye (on the other side. Like, halfway down it’s cheek. So weird), and a bunch of holes. Dog toy.

Attempt 5: Success! Free standing dino that LOOKS like a dino and doesn’t have any super ugly visible seams!

As it turns out, ten minutes in my head translates roughly into two nights and a lot more trash versions than I cared to photograph. But you know what? We got there!
