InstructionsSorry, I do not have a pattern really for this that's able to be put online at this time.
I just kind of hand drew the dinosaur body, and then the legs (all four are the same pattern).

What was your inspiration?
My daughter absolutely LOVES dinosaurs, especially the long necks. She can tell you any of them, how big they were, when they were on the Earth, etc. So for graduating kindergarten, I thought I would make this for her passing gift.
What are you most proud of?
I've only been working on a sewing machine for a few months now (got it as a birthday present in March), and I'm proud of the fact that I made the pattern myself, figured out the dynamics, and made it with no help, other than to research how to do a hidden stitch.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time, for sure. Don't get too frustrated, either. I'm not sure what other advice I could give.
