DIY Dinosaur Plush Toy

It is not a secret here that my son loves dinosaurs so last year he asked me to make a dino plush toy. I said yes but I was busy and lazy last year so it really took me a long time to fulfill my promise. 

My son asked before we watched Jurassic World. We’ve been to Dinosaurs Island and nagshowing na lang ang The Good Dinosaurs hindi ko pa rin nagagawa. #lazymom 

The last time I sew was July 2015, I sew one dozen of pillow cases and after that I forgot to make any sewing project so yesterday, I push myself to sew again. My husband was teasing me when he saw me preparing my sewing machine. 

Hubby: Gumagana pa ba yan? Baka kinakalawang na. hehehe!

My son saw me sewing the dinosaur and he asked me, 

Ethan: Mommy, you want to be like Wowa?
Me: Why? 
Ethan: because you’re making stuffed toy. 

I smiled because he remembered the handmade doll that his Wowa made for him, you can check it here and here.  

Anyway, here are the steps of DIY Dino Plush Toy 



Cut the pattern and fabric. 



Pin, sew the fabric (opposite side) and leave a small opening. 



Turn the fabric inside out and put the fiberfill inside. 

Then hand sew the opening. Glue the eyes. 



You can do this by hand but I wanted to use the sewing machine, hehehe! I realized that it is not easy to make a small plush toy and marami pa curves so medyo matagal. Not a perfect dinosaur plush toy but my son was very happy and he even said. “Galing ka mommy!

But after few hours.

Ethan: Mommy, this dinosaur cannot stand, it needs four legs. 

Waah!

Ethan! Mommy, you need to put ribbon at the back (spikes)

Okay, so I need to improve this dino plush toy pag sinipag ulit ako. hehehe!

  4. I would love to make this too pag may time. My son loves dinos as well, but I haven't thought of this because I am not really into sewing, but maybe I can try. Thank you for the idea sis.

  6. Hahaha. The dinos cant stand. But nonetheless, you are one sweet mommy. I also have a portable sewing machine and I havent been using it for months. Your post maybe is a reminder for me to get it and start repairing my husband's and kids' shorts. Thanks for this!

  13. Your sewing machine looks handy. Hindi scary i-operate. I didn't learn how to sew. Atin-atin lang ha, baka mabasa ng Home Economics teacher ko. Hehe. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Cutie! I envy you because I don't have a knack at sewing. I bought a portable sewing machine before and tried it for the first time after 5 years. I kinda broke it after though. Fail! Haha.

  15. These are so cute! My son will love these because he's into dinosaurs too. I can't really sew though. The last time I used a sewing machine was way back in high school.
