Free Pattern Friday! Tiny Dino Plush

prj091
I knew I had wanted to do a dinosaur plush for months now, and I’ve been obsessed with designing things with simple shapes. So those two together brings us this tubby little dino plush! It’s got a round, stubby little body with four tiny legs and lots of spikes going down the back.

If you’re not used to working with really tiny pieces it might be tricky, but it’s also good practice. Other than that it’s just got some darts and curved sewing, so I gave it 2/10 stars in difficulty. If tiny pieces are really difficult for you it might be closer to a 3/10. All in all a decent plush to make if you’re ready to move away from pillow-style soft toys.

I can see using this same pattern for a dragon or other similar animals 😀 Just add some wings on the back and you’re pretty much good to go!

Freebie Friday! Yoshi Egg Potholders

Prj063

Putting together this project was kind of a lucky break for me 😀 At my house we’re in desperate need of some more potholders, particularly because I do a lot of baking and cooking and somehow the ones I have always end up disappearing! I had some extra scraps of terry cloth and seeing the colors I had to choose from – white and pastel shades of pink, blue, and green – the boyfriend commented on how much they looked like Yoshi eggs, so it was an easy choice from there! They’re essentially dinosaur eggs, so if you’re not familiar with Yoshi you can just think of them like that ^-^ The egg shape makes it ideal for giving your hand a nice wide area to grip the potholder with, and the pocket on the back is helpful for keeping it on your hand. I know most potholder patterns include a loop for hanging, but I never use those so I kept them off of mine. I hope you agree that the finished egg looks just like it came out of the Mario games 😀
