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?
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.
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!
