So once you get most of the sewing done, then comes the detail work. Actually this is sort of fun.
Using duplicate stitch and outline stitch, you add spots:
And a face:
The eyes are stuffed with an extra little bit to make them bug out:
Like a car detailer, the fun of this is adding these final bits of personality. After all this time of working your dino, he finally starts to look, well, like a dino. Best of all, once you get all your spots and grin and teeth on, you are ready to get out the stuffing and transform your flat dino into the real thing.
And then the hard part will come. Giving him up!
Anyone else eying last minute knitting projects? What are you trying to get off the needles?
