I don't know what possessed me to sew this, but when I saw the pattern in One-Yard Wonders, I knew I had to make it. It's my first stuffed animal. I didn't have any plans for it—stuffed dinosaurs aren't terribly useful—but Tiger Lily immediately claimed it as her own. The spikes make a perfect carrying handle.
Notes to self for the future: sewing on the bottoms of the feet is much easier by hand; fabric marker works for eyes.
